Only one of the listed stories are free. The rest are $3.99 EACH! Nothing wrong with that, but they sure don't tell anyone ahead of time.

Great app, great story presentation, steep price... ...1 book free, 5 more at $3.99 each. 1st book apx 10 minutes. I would suggest $0.99 per book, and or $3.99 for all 5, and or $9.99 for all 5 and donation... 3 stars...

Beautiful application and gives back to a good cause. The stories are great. The illustrations are awesome. But what makes it better is that part of the sale goes to a good cause! The app is also working UNICEF UK and will be donating 30 percent of proceeds to benefit the children's fund.
