This is really a great looking book with clever moments of interactivity. However it does lack a read-along feature that is present in every other interactive book available in the app store. This would be a feature, as well as sound effects.

Considering a real book is the same price and this one offers beautiful pictures, innovative use of touch that is fun, and a good abridged version that is short enough for my daughter to enjoy... Well worth the price! Great job helping parents teach young ones that books are fun!

This app is put together so well! I'm very impressed with the moving illustrations as I read! So happy I downloaded this :)

Pros: this is beautifully illustrated and there's just enough fun going on to not distract from the story. Cons: it's super short for $9. I was expecting to do a few pages a night and was finished in two. Overall: The lite version is only missing a few pages, so stick with that for free.

I enjoyed this, the illustration style was decent could have been better but we don't have much choice yet regrading various digital version in this new form or media so yeah. What i found lacking was sound effects, why go part way there? motion of graphics is great but sounds would have been nice along with audio reading of the book with a few choices of vocal talents. Developers need to push all angles if they want consumers to fork over the cash for such media, sounds for page turning and let the user set preferences and toggle them off for battery conservation if the battery is running low etc. This is good work and i love it for what it is but there IS ROOM for improvements.

Very good story App but very weak interactivity and the fact that their is not a play option with highlighting of the words is a bad oversight especially for this price.

It is a beautiful book,but no audio. Especially disconcerting when bottles drop, candies fall and other interactive events happen with dead silence. If you want to be highbrow and make children read the book instead of listening, fine. But please, give the interactive scenes sound effects.

This is a beautiful-looking application, and my daughter and I have really enjoyed reading it together. She likes the illustrations and the little bits of interaction. Really the only two complaints are: 1) It's not well-proofread or edited, so there are typos and awkward transitions; 2) it's simply too abridged. The free version will get you most of the book, so once you pay you get just a bit more, because they've edited the story so aggressively. That leads to the awkward transitions, and there's too much of the story missing. Even my 6-1/2 year-old daughter knew that there was much of the story edited out. Come on, guys, give us an update with more of the book put back in, okay? It can't be that hard. Give us most or all of the story and I'll immediately up my rating to 5 stars. This could be an example of where books can be taken in the future, but instead it feels a bit cheap.

I forgot what I paid for this book, but if I ever want to impress kids and adults alike, this is what I show them. The illustrations are gorgeous, the interactive pages are engaging and the story true to Louis Carrol.

... this is still a wonderful app! If you can calm down from the crazy video and mega-hype that this has had you'll find something that's artfully delivering illustrations and a story that are as vibrant today as they were 100 years ago. Using physics to make the entire device interactive was a stroke of brilliance by the creators and has made this the FIRST of what will surely be many many books for the iPad that showcase not only a great text and drawings but also why the iPad is better for books than the (now incredibly) dowdy looking Kindle!
