Great Fun

My Daughter absolutely loves this and wants to go through it over & over again!

I read the other comments about the slow response times etc., and for my part, I can say that the version I got (after the late April update) works perfectly - there's a second or two loading time for each page, but that's about it.

Well worth the price - hopefully "Another Monster At The End Of This Book" will get a similar release!

Adds ?? I paid for this

Little tile add that flips throughout the entire story. Makes this app useless for my autistic son. Dissatisfied.

Pleased and disappointed

I'm a long time fan of the book so I was excited to find it in an app. Every child (from surprisingly varied ages) love it when I read the book to them.
It's great that Grover can read the story aloud and act it out. I love how the kids interact to destroy Grover's attempts to stop them turning pages. They also have additional ideas for home activities related to the story.
I was disappointed (and surprised), however, that there appears to be no option to use the app as a book I can read myself, at my own pace. Reading TO the kids is where I get my joy from the book. I noticed in the parent section it suggests turning your iPad to silent but Grover continues to appear to read and the words continue to come up at their own pace, and some even disappear.
Please add a 'ready by myself' option. Also, the bricks seem to topple on their own without any child interaction.
