Just received, so can't comment on all the stories (125 in total)

some you may not recognise in the index, as they have their original titles, such as Cinderella, is called Ashputtel

stories can be sorted by: title, author, genre (fairytale, short story etc)

you can set it so that you can see how many pages there are in each book (which can be helpful, as a few of the short stories are not all that short)

also you can use a bookmark to keep your place (up to 3 per book)

one thing to remember is that the stories are in their original format, Ashputtel has one of the sisters, cutting off her toe to make the shoe fit, in tom thumb the wolf that swallows tom has his head cut off, things like that, (something to keep in mind if your child is the sensitive type) others are just different from the version you may remember reading when you were a child

Just think how heavy would 125 books be and how much a game chip would weight not a lot.
Since i was going to wales i alway play my Ds now i can read a book on it while im on the train.

The text is pretty big 1 page take up half of the ds screan turned side ways. 12 lines on a page with 125 storys to chose from. plus you can save the page ur on and read later. at a bargin price

A great selection of books for both children and adults alike to read, lots of well known titles. Easy to use on the DS, and also easy to read on the screen. I would recommend this for any bookworm regardless of age.

My 11 yr old is really excited that she can read her books on her nintendo. She is much more interested in gadgets than paper.

The only downside is the absence of the graphics that a 4-year-old would love in a book. We love bed time stories but looking at just the texts,it bores her quickly. We only used it twice. She prefers the Junior Brain Training instead.

I bought this for my niece who has just discovered the delights of reading. It is a great way to introduce alot of different books and the advantages of e-reading. She enjoys copying her Mum who has an e-reader. A cheap way to increase your library.

I'm going to be honest I've had the game for 10 minutes and I've already found a massive problem. The makers of this game haven't included a rotate screen option for left handed people. Yes I am left handed. I'm not taking anything away from the game but already this has become a problem for me as I am unable to read upside down (obviously) And crossing my left arm over my right to use the screen is awkward (to say the least). I'm sure the books are fantastic, I'll get to reading them once I've done this but I thought I should warn potential left handed buyers as I wouldn't have bought this if I'd known. If any of you have found out how to do this and I'm wrong, please correct me and I'll alter my review.

Great for taking on long trips where books take up too much room, hundred+ stories to read so should always be able to find something interesting.
