Quality book

Although difficult to turn pages, it's probably just me. This book has great illustrations and animations. Excellent story for kids. I wish they would make more

Darling animation

I bought this for the grandchildren when they come to visit. The older one can read to her brother, and he can participate by interacting with the screen. Darling adaptation of the original story.
