BOOK REVIEW

GRIMM'S FROG KING by JustKidsApps
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 31, 2012

"Although the alternative narrative tries a little too hard to explain the morals of the story, this is a clever update of a classic that allows young readers to question old stereotypes. (iPad storybook app. 4-8)"

BOOK REVIEW

HEIDI PART II by Johanna Spyri
by Johanna Spyri, illustrated by Diana Kizlauskas, developed by JustKidsApps
CHILDREN'S
Released: June 24, 2011

"Despite aunt Dete's infernal meddling (she drags poor Hieidi to Frankfurt in the second installment; the third is not yet available), this oh-so-slightly saccharine tale delivers a reliably upbeat outcome for readers who enjoy a nice old-fashioned story. (iPad storybook app. 4-10)"
A pedestrian adaptation of the classic delivers little transcendence, but it does make for a comfortable introduction for younger readers. Read full book review >
