The illustrations in this title are just outstanding - vivid colors and beautifully rendered.  The voice over is also done nicely. Both together will make your child happy to hear and read the story. I recommend other titles within this series.

Its description says that it is a charming and brightly illustrated re-telling of the story. I agree it is brightly illustrated but vehemently disagree with charming. This is not appropriate for children. I read with children regularly and will delete this free ebook as soon as this review is posted. Perhaps it is simply the story itself that irks me so greatly, but as I read this, I couldn’t help thinking that the piper is responsible for making a vague agreement with the town. After he rids it of mice, the reward he receives is not sufficient for him. That strikes me as an error in negotiating on his part. His response to this? To abduct the town’s children without explanation. That seems heinous and vindictive on a brutal level to me, particularly since the piper himself was as responsible for the deal as the town was. Perhaps I’m being too sensitive. Perhaps I’m overreacting to this old tale. Regardless, no child will be terrified by it from my hands.
