This is the best version yet of the most famous tale of the city of Hamelin. A story for kids ages 6 and up tells surprising turn of events that makes this city look for a hero. A young flautist appears, promises are made and not kept and in the end our little hero decides to take matters into her own hands.

Hamelin residents begin to see an increased number of cockroaches filling the city and the officials don´t know what to do. They announce that will offer a generous reward to anyone who can get the cockroaches out of the city. Magically their hero arrives, and succeeds in the task, however once the city is left in peace the powerful governors of the city forget their promise to the young flautist so, she uses her talent to lead something else from the selfish city – something the city will miss, forever.

    The flautist rocks!!

    I really enjoyed listening to the narrration while I was looking at the pages and playing around with the many special media effects. It is a fine rendition of a classic story. The only downside was that my nook seemed to occasionally not be fast enough - a coupla times a message came up saying that the nook was not responding and do I wangt to wait or quit? The waiting was not so long. If I had not seen thee pop-up message I don' t believe I would have noticed. Could be my nook is really crowded with lots of stuff - nearly 3000 books by now. Overall, I really like it and recommend it highly.
