Customer Reviews


First, I whole heartedly agree with others on the fact that the ads really subvert the experience. Second, in the app itself, no credit is given to the original creators, even though it the app uses original text. A student wanted to record her reading of this eBook but had to look up the author online as we could not find it in the app settings, index, or extras. Also, the interactive animation, while mindlessly entertaining, is distracting and not purposeful in relation to the story.

Not useful for younger kids

The interactivity is a nice touch, but since the book doesn't read itself to younger children, you're constantly shuffling the iPad back and forth during the reading which isn't too user friendly. The ads are a bit annoying and really interrupt the flow of the book and are not always appropriate for a kids story. I'm glad I got this when it was free or I'd really feel ripped off, but I got what I paid for.

Beautiful Book, Ugly Ads, Premium Version???

So you buy a beautifully illustrated book... Although glaring at you at the very top of each page are ads, play bingo, play kingdom something or another, download Chrome. Yuck! Way to ruin a classic story.

To get rid of the ads you have to buy the "premium" version for another $2.99 on top of your $5. No thanks.
