This isn't a book so much as a mini-game/activity for very young kids. It is engaging and fun to 'flip' (or slide in the case of the iPad), the three different segments of each body to mix and match. Create a mouserpillar-octopus, like I did above, or one of dozens of other combinations. No audio, text or extras.
This little book is basically just an iPad version of a flip book, featuring a caterpillar, parrot, octopus, fish and mouse. The illustrations are rich and have a sepia-tone quality, like antique paper.
There is no other interactivity except to flip the pieces to create dozens of funny creatures. A modern take on the flip-book, in touchable digital form. For more combinations, there is an in app purchase for two 'expansion' sets:
Ant, Dinosaur, Lady Bug, Mantis, & Penguin OR Sea Horse, Sea Lion, Snowman, Alien, & Cat
The starter pack of creatures inclues 5 images (split into 15 segments), which isn't much play time, but otherwise a fun diversion.
All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
