This is the classic American Christmas poem 3d animated like you have never seen it before, playful, funny and slightly irreverent. The app lets the user choose from one of three professionally recorded narrations, lets the user record their own voice reading the poem, includes film caliber music and sound effects, and numerous animated surprises, including an hilarious one minute intricately choreographed st-nick-delivering-gifts-in-a-home-dance-routine.

Art style is maddening to say the least


I own the Pedlar Lady… love it! Can't stand this book however. The art style used on the inside, the squiggly lines bouncing around the characters, makes the book very unpleasant (being nice here) to look at. I might enjoy the book if I were in an "altered state of mind" but since I don't do things to put me there, the book is unwatchable to me.

It's okay..


The illustrations do not follow the poem and if you have the auto page turner on, it will turn during the poem, cutting off that stanza.
