What it is and what you do with it: the interactive version of the book by Mercer Mayer (about 21 pages long).

Three reading modes: listen to the narrated story with the words highlighted, read as a 'traditional' book and auto play (automatic reading and turning the pages). Tap on the pictures to hear the associated words read out.

Additional activity: find 21 mice and 21 spiders hidden in the pages.

What we liked: the story. Original artwork. Sounds and sound backgrounds. Good navigation and reading options (easy access to single pages, words are highlighted when read by the narrator etc.). Professional narration (plus the option to record and share your own narration). The spot the mice/spiders activity.

What we didn't like: the pages are very static (apart from zoom in/zoom out type animations).
