I love it

My kids love this story and the animations, and I ended up liking it too. When it's story time they ask for this book on repeat. It has a classical Japanese feel while being fun and educational at the same time.

One Inch

This illustrated and animated children's story is creative and fun. It has an interactive element on every page. Sound effects are good. It has a happy ending. I really liked it.
