It was such a nice coincidence that I get to review this storybook app with my kiddos! I was just looking at the movie poster in the cinema the other day and was telling my 4 years old Benjamin there is this new snail racing movie coming out soon and we might get to watch it if daddy is free. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

Description from the product page:
"Turbo Movie Storybook Deluxe lets fans ride along for the greatest under-snail story of all time. Turbo has big dreams of becoming a race car driver like his hero, Guy Gagné, but his brother Chet doesn’t understand his need for speed. Turbo believes that no dreams are too big and no dreamer too small. Will Turbo make his dreams come true and race in the Indy 500? Join Turbo, Chet, Tito, Whiplash, Smoove Move, Burn, and colorful cast of characters to find out if Turbo can cross the finish line!"
* The illustrations is clear and vivid, as for storyline, I'm happy we get to preview this storyapp first before we watched the movie on 20th July 2013! I used the opportunity in this storyapp to teach my boy that we must work hard towards making our dreams come true and not just sit around and become lazy.
* One of the cool thing in this app is there are other options for you to play around such as 'Meet the Crew', 'Racing Team' and 'Turbo Training' apart from being able to customize Turbo’s shell via the Turbo-ize option.
* I'm also impressed that not long after watching this storyapp, my 4 years old boy started drawing snails on his doodling activity time. Not bad!
