Ratings and Reviews
cute book poor coding
The book is really cute, and my girls love it. So far they have laughed every time we play it. I wish there was more interaction in the book. For instance, I think the Mickey Mouse Halloween book has more interaction with finding the ghosts on every page and the multiple puzzles that have to be solved. Aside from the page flipping, I think this book only has 3 pages with interaction and the interaction is pretty simple and not very thought provoking even for my 3 year old. My biggest complaint is with the delays between each page. It takes a fair amount of time between pages, and it really ruins the flow and narration of the book. I have seen other books with just as much animation that have a much more seamless transition from page to page. It is worth the introductory price of $1, but I am not sure I would pay anymore than that in its current state.
One of the absolute best
A total classic, and the app ran with the magic of the book and is a classic itself! So many hidden gems. Any time I visit my nieces and nephews kids are climbing over me to play/read, and my infant absolutely loves it!
For the person who said it needs more interaction, it doesn’t. Like the book, the story is well done it doesn’t need “bells and whistles.” It stands so strong on its own.
Please don’t try to “improve” it and ruin it like “Elmo’s potty time” was ruined recently! Just update for compatibility and let perfection be!
Classic book is now animated and interactive
When I was a kid, I loved this book. Now the child in my life is captivated by the story as well, only his experience is enhanced with animation and sound effects! Thank you so much for updating this app to work with iOS 11. I'm glad we can continue to enjoy it together.
