This is a collection of seven short stories this include:
- The Bippolo Seed: a mischievous, greedy cat leads an innocent duck astray

- The Great Henry McBride: a day-dreaming boy fantasizes about wild careers.
Dr. Seuss delights as always and if you are a fan of his books, this application is another fine addition to your collection.
This book is a very good book and great fun for children and adults alike.
The story is well read in audio book mode, with several different readers.
On the upside:
- Universal for iPad and iPhone.
- Well read.
- A weeks worth of bedtime stories.
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
- Some stories lack a little in the artwork department (number of pictures or quality)
Overall, this is another excellent book for Oceanhouse Media. The pricing is about right with you paying roughly the 69p per story. For fans of Dr Seuss this really is a must have, and for parents looking for some bedtime stories.
