This awesome book was first published in 1971! We have had many discussions about the fact that although this book is over 40 years old, it was just made to be an e-book! The theory we have come up with is that Sesame Street, at the time were animators as opposed to authors and illustrators. So it goes without saying that this e-book is one of the best. The thing I love best about this app is that it remains so true to the book. If you remember this book as a child you won’t be disappointed. The reader is encouraged to interact with the page by cutting ropes, knocking down walls etc… The best thing is, is that these interactions do not detract from the story but rather enhance it.

This app is very entertaining and fun. My children cannot get enough of it and is one amongst the handful of apps that they keep going back to and never get tired of. Great graphics and humourous.
