Is it any good?

MISS SPIDER'S TEA PARTY FOR iPAD presents the classic David Kirk picture book in two ways. One has the original illustrations from the book, all of which respond to touching, allowing characters to speak and move about. The other mode shows a completely animated version of the tale (it looks like a movie), with the book's original text still visible for reading along. The graphics on this app are simply stunning. And you also get a memory match game, a set of jigsaw puzzles, and a rather sophisticated art & coloring feature that could be an app unto itself.
