Tacky and the Emperor is an e-book / audio book and is published by Oceanhouse Media.
“It’s common knowledge that Tacky was never the best-dressed penguin, but when he and his friends prepare for the arrival of the emperor, Tacky gets carried away and ends up in more than just elegant attire! Tacky brings his own unique brand of humor and entertainment to the emperor’s visit.”
This book gives you the options of reading the book yourself, having the read to you (and you control the page turns) or the complete book read to you automatically. The application also adds extra interaction by touching something on the screen the name appears in print and word is spoken.
The book a tale of a nice, but lazy Penguin Tacky as he helps his friends prepare from the Emporer’s visit, but when a large ballon he is preparing explodes and he lands by the Emporer’s castle things take a strange twist.
This book is good for adults or kids.
On the upside:
- Interactive with the book adds to the “re-readability” of the book.
- Universal for iPad and iPhone.
- Nicely drawn.
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
Overall, this is an excellent book. This is probably our favorite out of the Tacky stories released by OceanHouse Media to date. If you have not read a Tacky book yet, then this one is well worth a download.
