The Three Little pigs

Great story, my grandchildren love this traditional story with a happy ending, unless you are on the side of the wolf!

What a letdown!

We bought this after kids really liked Jack and the Beanstalk in the same series -- what a letdown! Even our youngest was bored well before the end of the game, because there are so few interesting interactive tasks to perform. Mostly, it's just a question of touching the characters to prompt them to speak their next line. Sorry, we felt our money wasted.

Worth every penny!

I bought this for the iPad to cheer up my four year-old daughter during a visit to hospital for a scan. As it happened she was fine about the trip to the hospital so we fired up the book when we got home. After the third time through together I was dismissed so she could do it by herself!

She was desperate to have it again at bed time, with my six year-old son sat on the other side of me, equally rapt. They both wanted to read it again and had to be promised another run through in the morning (which turned out to be another three runs through...).

This is precisely what a children's book should look and sound like on the iPad. It's beautifully illustrated and animated, the narration and voice acting are spot on and it's full of fun things for little fingers to poke, press, lift and flip.

I'd recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone with small children. I just can't imagine anyone not liking this - just be prepared to give up your iPad for a while!
