This short but sweet story is about a princess who lives in a kingdom full of rose bushes that bloom year-round. Princess Anna is trying to get one particularly stubborn bush to bloom when she falls asleep. What happens when she wakes up is a fragrant mystery. This simple storybook is not enhanced with animation but does have a unique and engaging interactive interface. Every page includes a selection of stickers to add more detail to the scene. The stickers are delightful, featuring the same expressive and quirky illustrations that make this book a visual treat for readers ages 4-8. There is no page guide or highlighting and several links that leave the app, but other options are plentiful, including the ability to record your own narration. A great read with creative possibilities, this is a book that Princess lovers will be especially delighted to find on their screens.
