The illustrations are excellent but I was disappointed by some word changes from the original and the interactive eBook features are not useful/poorly implemented. The original Kipling text is out of copyright so it is readily available elsewhere for free. In this book they changed "'satiable" elephant's child to "insatiable" throughout (ie. they expanded the informal contraction wherein the "in" at the beginning was replaced by an apostrophe) ...although technically correct, I think the story reads better as originally written. The "interactive feature" allows you to touch a paragraph of text and it is then shown in a larger font in a box over the illustration so it is easier to read than the TINY text in the book. This feature worked so poorly that I do not use it.
