Boy Dumplings HD

October 4, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

A clever boy outsmarts a hungry ghost ...

This is a nice little story about a ghost that tries to eat a chubby little boy who is out late one night. From PicPocket Books, this title features a great traditional tale about a boy who convinces a scary ghost that he has a recipe for ‘boy dumplings’ that is so tantalizing that the ghost doesn’t realize it is almost light out.

A very clever boy and even more creative recipe. Great for year-round reading and teaches how to take advantage of another’s greed and evil intentions. Great story although image resolution and page layout coul

This title is one of over a dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post, "Enhanced Spookiness! Top 10 iPad Book Apps for Halloween"
