Beautiful visuals - some suggestions

This is basically a children's picture book. You turn the pages - you can read it yourself, or have it read to you. Animated scrolls reveal the text as you turn to each page. Other than that, there is no interaction with the story.

When you reach the end of the story, there is no way to return to the beginning except to quit the app. I suggest this be added. I'm sure a child would like to go through it more than once, just to look at the illustrations, which are lovely. Santa does look a little stern and this might be construed as scary to a child, but I was not bothered by that.

I think this is the start of an app with great potential, if other features and interactive elements are added.

No longer works; do not buy

This app has not been updated since 2010 and no longer functions on iOS 8. Worse, the developers likely knew this before their most recent price drop and we're just trying to make a quick buck off unsuspecting customers.

You definitely should not buy it unless it is updated to a new version that fixes this issue.

A classic version of a classic tale

After looking at all the slapped together versions of this story (I bought two others first). I can confidently say this is the definitive one for the iPad.
