I bought this interactive story CD because I have Windows 7 and the Nessy range is one of the few that actually works on my laptop. Installing was very easy and you don't have to keep the CD in the the drive to use it. Same goes for Nessy's Games. In this respect, you're able to let your child double-click on the desktop icon and get on with it if they wish. No worrying about your CD drive being snapped off or CDs getting rammed into it the wrong way etc.

I've been using this with my 3 year old. She likes to snuggle up next to me on the sofa and help me click through the pages to hear Bill Bailey read the stories. He's actually very good at this! His voice is fairly monotonous for adults, but he keeps my daughter's attention. That's got to be the most important thing here.

There are five stories and a short 5 question quiz at the end of each.

Every story page opens to reveal a left and right page (text on left - picture on right). There is the option on every page to animate the picture and there are always one or two 'hotspots' for your child to click on to see a couple of extra animations.

I think I would have liked more stories to choose from or an option to download more. Maybe there is an option, but I haven't found it if there is. Even though the stories are fairly long (more than 20 pages each), you soon get through them all. Also the 5 questions are always the same and I'd prefer it if they were different each time...a cycle of random questions etc.

Another gripe I have is that, while using the quiz, there seems no option to skip back to the page that would give you the answer. So we are constantly clicking back, back, back etc.

All in all...this is easy to use and keeps my daughter focused. Its not trying to compete with other similar products by using over-the-top narration. Bill Bailey reads the story...my daughter listens...so I'm happy enough.

I cannot say much about this reading book as it is a present to my grandkid who lives abroad, however, from reports I can say that the child who is 6 yrs old likes it.

The children I teach have loved these stories, me too, and the computer disk is great, very motivating. Thank you.
