Description from the product page:

"A book published by Kite Editions becomes an extraordinary application for iPad! A captivating and simple story, written by Marinella Barigazzi with Ursula Bucher's wonderful illustrations, original music, entertaining animations and sounds.

Marco gets on the train, and page after page he discovers a world behind the window. As the pages of the app turn and the landscape passes by, Marco thinks and daydreams on the nature and the animals that live beyond the pane, and you too can discover and think along with him, and play with the objects of its reflections and the landscape that slides in front of Marco, in front of your eyes and under your fingers."

What's good?

* This is an easy to read book app that also comes with 4 puzzle games as well. I was excited to see my 3 year old happily playing one of the puzzle game with his daddy!

* The illustrations are amazing and pleasing to the eyes as well, captivating enough even I caught myself gazing dreamily in some of the beautiful pages!

* I like the sounds and animations that comes along as we read through the pages, especially the thunderstorm (I am a fan of dark sky, rainy sky, thunderstorm etc etc).

* There are some pages which got Ben's attention and reactions such as the page where Marco wonders about the lights of the night. Ben enjoyed this page very much and kept on playing and sliding the train to and fro! (Yes, he is a fan of trains too!)

Room for Improvement?

* Maybe it's just my weird preferance but I would prefer if the book app ended with the "The End" words shown so that we can know that the story ended... instead of leaving us wondering is this the end? Or perhaps this is a tactic of this book based on it's title? Hmmm...
