Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

3.0 out of 5 stars No interactivity June 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I haven't seen Madagascar 3 yet, so I don't know how well this storybook matches the movie, but it does seem to be the same kind of madcap adventures the animals experienced in the first two movies.

The images look great, and using the actual voice actors from the movie is a nice touch. It's the next best thing to watching the movie.

I'm a bit disappointed, however, that there is absolutely no interactivity. You would think that a digital storybook based on an animated cartoon would have some animation, but no, the images are completely static. The app does not even offer pronunciation when you tap on a word in the text. With a normal price of $3.99, I'd expect a bit more.

Overall I like this book for what it is, a beautifully drawn audio book for children. The graphics are just stunning on my Kindle Fire and your kids will love it. The book has three modes of being read, Auto Play, Read It To Me where you turn the page, and Read It Myself. It is a cute story and features the voices of many of the stars of Madagascar 3. The narrator does a good job as his voice is clear and easy to understand.

What I miss in the book is any animation. We have seen many of these books where you can touch the screen to make objects, people or animals move and this book lacks any of that fun action. Many of the animated books we have gotten in the past also include a small game imbedded into them to look for hidden characters for example, this is also missing. You cannot even touch a word in the story and have it spoken to you.

The book does ask for web access and if you touch the screen the information button opens up. Touching it allows access to three websites to buy more books. It takes you to the Android site, Amazon and Nook. Make sure you turn off the WIFI or lock your accounts to not allow One Touch Buying or you may wind up owning several of these books for $2.99 each, compliments of your kids. There are also links to your email and Facebook accounts.

Overall this is a beautiful colored picture story book about the popular Madagascar animals and your children will enjoy it. I just wish that animation had been included to make the book more interactive and educational.

I enjoyed using this app from time to time.but since it is a book it gts boring after a few uses. But I like the "read along" aspect, with the characters real voices from the movie.

This is a cute movie storybook. Runs very well on my kindle fire and my grandchildren seem to enjoy it. It is not very long so if you are looking for something to entertain any length of time this is not it. But it mada a great liitle addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a book not a game, Duh! June 8, 2012
My kid loves this book. It is not suppossed to be interactive. For goodness sakes people, teach your kids to sit still for 5 min and do something that requires using their brains. Sit with them while they are reading it and spend some quality time with them. That said, good story, nice graphics, and an all around enjoyable book.

3.0 out of 5 stars movie trailer, or book? June 8, 2012
By Splitfx
Verified Purchase
Not much to do here besides just watch and listen. There are too few images for such a complicated story. Other books that aren't trailers for the movie have much more to do... Like little sounds and stuff to touch and make move.

Very rushed, but good execution... Solid 3 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Falls short at every turn June 8, 2012
By Sam98

I haven't seen any of the Madagascar movies, but I had to go look up the trailer after reading this book. It looks to be a fun movie with great animation, but if the movie is anything like the book I won't be taking any little kids to see it.

This is a review of the book only since I haven't seen the movie. It starts off innocently enough with the friends trying to cheer up Alex on his birthday. Then it goes downhill from there. They go to Monte Carlo where they BREAK INTO A CASINO where their friends are GAMBLING and winning. They escape and STEAL a car called the "Luxury Assault Recreational Vehicle". The VERY buxom captain from animal control is after them and is "determined that Alex's head would hang on her trophy wall". She is hot on their trail when they run into a circus and LIE about who they are. After some circus adventures the captain catches up with them again and shoots them with tranquilizer darts. Who puts this stuff in a kids story? And before I get responses about all the other children's books with this kind of thing, I would like to point out that it is usually the BAD guys doing them, not the heros.

I won't go on and hopefully these things are not as emphasized as much in the movie as they are in the book. The story is too broken up and makes no sense without the rest of the story, even for a story with talking animals. The pictures are colorful and look to be taken out of the movie but they are still shots which just makes them look flat and boring without the animation. And there is also only one picture for every two pages of story. I think children who have seen the movie will be disappointed and bored with this book. All in all, not a keeper, for me.
