This review is from: Kiki & Coco in Paris (Kindle Edition)
Precious book. I have already ordered a hardcover edition for my grandchildren. The trouble is with Kindle edition. The print is so small that we had trouble reading the text, even after stopping to fetch a magnifying glass during the most exciting part of the story. The font is microscopic and you are unable to enlarge the size. Also, the way Kindle shows only one page at a time, many times you must move away from a full page picture to a page that describes the previous page. You should be able to see the picture and discuss the text at the same time. I felt this caused the pictures to lose their impact.
The pictures are darling and the story is sweet. My 5 year old will love this wonderful picture book for years to come. 5 stars for the book. I had ordered this on Kindle to amuse her during a visit to the doctor, but we had to abandon reading it until we got home and found the magnifying glass.
My poor rating is concerning the Kindle edition. We tried reading it on Kindle, Kindle Fire, and Kindle app on iPad2. Terrible on all! I can't wait to receive the hardcover edition. But the Kindle edition is a total waste of money. No stars was not an option, but that is my opinion of the Kindle edition. One of the reasons I upgraded from Kindle to Kindle Fire was to have children's books on the go. Now I am not sure I will ever order another. This was really a poor experience.
