The Skallywaggle Tails™ are on their way to a gig when the Silencers chase them with bubbles of silence. So what can they do? The band uses music to power their guitar-shaped ship but no matter how fast they play they can’t outrun the Silencers. They better think of something fast!

What's New in Version 1.1
Apple compliance fix.
My 5 year old loves this! Even though she is unable to read she can enjoy and participate because it is narrated in an audio book format. She was totally enthralled with the story and keeps finding more touch buttons with sounds, music, animations and movies. There are so many activities that she likes. She's been at it for hours. It's nice to see her learning and having fun on the iPad. And we all love the piano - even my husband is playing it with my daughter and playing songs.
A great story
The kids love this new musical book!!
