The story could have been helped a little if the animals were given descriptions instead of just names, for example "Willy, the baby duckling." I didn't get the idea that Willy was hard of hearing, simply a child who misunderstands. And who is Mo? A dog?
I really liked the formatting of this book. The font is normal so it can be changed. The illustrations can be enlarged to cover the Kindle screen. This is a definite improvement over some other children's books I have downloaded for Kindle.
It could use just a few improvements, but I still give it 5 stars.
Some things could have been better defined, like I went back to the beginning of the story to figure out, "Now was Willy a duck or
a chick?" I didn't see it in the first few sentences. So then I thought I'd look closer at the pics. But they were too small, and I couldn't enlarge them on my tablet. The cover image is big enough, but Willy isn't in the cover image, although he's the main focus of the story.
And at first, when they said Maebelle was missing, I thought she was one of the chicks. So a little better definition and/or better images to help the flow of the story and eliminate the confusion.
None of that kept me from liking the story, though.
The grammar and punctuation leaves a lot to be desired. Some sentences are worded very poorly; others are run-on sentences. Several sentences either need more punctuation such as commas and/or semi-colons to help them flow better. Or, they need to be split into separate sentences. One sentence had a period instead of a question mark, and another one had no punctuation. Willy's name was misspelled at least once also. Perhaps those last three things were caused by the person that converted it to digital format, though.
Because the words were not printed on the pictures in this book, the story can be read to the child by the tablet via the Text-to-Speech function. However, I don't believe it pronounces "Maebelle" and "Nado" correctly. That's the downfall in using Text-to-Speech. (NOTE: I am using a Kindle Fire HD.)
