High Quality, Great Concept

RichardB77

I first heard of this book on the Cocos2D forums when I was learning how to develop apps. After seeing it in action, I'm amazed by the execution of the concept.

Pros: Nice artwork, fun interactivity, and the x-ray feature is unique and makes the app worth the price.

Cons: The lack of narration may be a turn off for younger readers and the x-ray feature might be more impressive to adults than it is to young children.

Overall: I'm very impressed by this version of a children's classic story. Personally, I don't feel the lack of narration is important, but it is worthwhile to note for parents who are looking for books with the read-to-me feature.

Gorgeous art and X-Ray vision too !

This interactive book has beautiful illustrations, and wonderful interactive elements throughout the story. Young children, and those who are young at heart, will have a ball playing with the different interactive baubles. Everything looks so realistic that you'd swear you were holding a real book in your hands, but the pages will never get ripped, and the gears and elastics that power everything will never get broken !

The X-Ray aspect of this book is what sets it apart from every other book on the iTunes store. At the press of a button, you can see the inner workings of the book with a virtual X-Ray window. It's fascinating to see the physics and mechanics of the book. I showed the book to a couple of young children, and they couldn't wait to see how every page worked. An ideal combination of magic and science.

If you're looking to get children excited about reading, this app is a perfect tool. The look of delight on the faces of the children was heartwarming to see, and their giggles are music to the ears. This book is a great value, and children (as well as adults) will come back to it again and again !

Blown away

I read about this app in a game developers forum and tried it out today. The graphics and the attention to detail blew me away.
The illusion of looking at a popup book with several layers and movable elements is so 100% convincing, so realistic that I was essentially not able to explain to my in-laws, grandparents of my 3yr old son, that this is an app :)
My son loved the playable elements and spent several minutes on every page to discover everything that is going on. He is too young to appreciate the x-ray vision, but that will come later. I see us coming back to this app for a long time.
Color me deeply impressed!
