Kirkus Reviews – The Four Little Pigs App!!!

Kirkus Reviews, a top American book review magazine has reviewed the Four Little Pigs App:


“…Granny Mag is a witch–not the wart-covered, child-eating kind; she’s what Samantha Stephens of Bewitched fame might have been like as a senior citizen. When her grandson Tom balks at “The Three Little Pigs” as a bedtime story, Granny Mag picks up her wand, gives him a snout and casts a spell that drops him in to the story. Tom immediately sets out to warn the pigs of their impending doom…. Interactive features are plentiful–a growling wolf, a melodic guitar, chuckling pigs, to name just a few…Bold colors and sharp illustrations make visual engagement easy, and characters are well drawn–both in a literary and an artistic sense. The wolf even elicits a little sympathy, as he’s clearly disoriented and frustrated by the fourth pig (Tom). There are auto-play and read-it-myself options, but an added bonus is that readers can opt for narration on a page-by-page basis.

…It’s a creative and charming alternative to standard swine fare. (iPad storybook app. 5-9)”
