What's it about?

Although a computer is no match for a treasured book and a parent's lap, if a parent happens to have laryngitis, this site can read its stories to a child. There are also animated movies that help bring the story to life, and most of the stories have an associated game. Some of the stories told include \"The Brementown Musicians,\" \"The Emperor's New Suit,\" and classic Grimm and Andersen fairy tales.

Is it any good?

There are some coloring pages on the site too, which download as PDF files. The drawings aren't very engaging and are a disappointment compared with the excitement of the rest of the site.
