I am so excited about this!!! As soon as I am home this weekend, I will be doing my download. I use this book to teach so many things at school (in every grade...) and at home with my kids just for fun. I can't wait to be able to pull it up on my SMARTboard and on my phone so my kids can enjoy it when we are on the road!!

This book is in our school media center, and a favorite in my classroom. When I found out that an electronic version was available, I had to get a copy for my own children, ages 6 and 8. They love the illustrations, I love the message, and I appreciate how I have the copy available for them to read on our computer, my iphone, and their touches through the B&N app. Can't beat the price for a great kids book.

Great e-book for 99 cents! Check it out and give it a good review. I am a school teacher who uses children's books in the classroom everyday. The children love the colorful illustrations and the lesson learned. This is great for story elements lessons with compare and contrast. I can't wait for his next book to come out in April! It's so awesome that he is on the Nookbooks Top Lend Me list. Be sure to lend it to your friends and family. Your kids will love the illustrations!

We use The Boy Who Cried Ug! with the NookColor in the classroom and media center. I read the story to the students. They loved the story, especially the illustrations. The students then read the book the next day. They won't put it down. It's addictive! There are many skills I can pull in with this book: story elements, compare and contrast, writing, sight words, read aloud, dinosaurs, fossils, etc. Great for beginning readers!

Pages and print won't enlarge so is so small you can't make out some words. My granddaughter quit trying to read it and told me to delete it because it hurt her eyes to try to read it. :o(

I am new to the NookColor and this is the first e-book I downloaded. Hey, it's only 99 cents! E-books at yardsale prices... My kids really enjoy the story and the wonderful illustrations. It would have been nice to get some more e-books, but they kept rereading it. That says it all.

The book was something I just purchased for a quick bedtime read for my son and daughter. They loved the illustrations the most, but the story was good too. I am definitely getting my monies worth, we are going on our third night of reading and I am amazed how my kids are picking up the words in the text.

I am an elementary school teacher and my students absolutely adore this story! After reading, we all talk about the importance of being honest and telling the truth to stem thoughtful writing. I also use this in a unit about comparing and contrasting story elements and the students love it! They always try to draw "Ug" afterwards to illustrate their stories and comparisons. You should definitely check out this book. It's a great one!

The print was searsly tiny. It wouldnt get larger. The man with the best vision couldnt see the tiny print. Its only worth 99 cents if you have good vision. Truly a gr8 book

Based on a "first timer" review, I tried this e-book out with my new NookColor. It's not interactive, but it's simple and grabbed my kid's attention, who by the way, hates reading. After reading it with me, he wanted to read it again on his own! The illustrations were wonderful. The story line was good with a twist ending. A good 99 cents well spent and worth it.

The text is very small and difficult to read. My grandson wanted to read alone with me but even he had a hard time seeing the words.

Iboughr this book without reading the reviews. When I opened it up, the font was sooo small I couldn't read it. Won't make that mistake again.

I purchased this book for my son to read on the NC. He is unable to read the tiny print with his 20/20 vision, so there is no hope for my four-eyed self! It is too bad because it seemed like it would be good story judging by the rating.

I can't believe that someone released this and called it an "e-book". The "pages" are only about 1/4 of the nook screen and CANNOT be enlarged. Pathetic. The story was alright but I want my money back on this because I'm sure I won't be 'reading' this again.

My kids enjoyed it from the beginning. I purchased my NookColor to motivate my kids to want to read, and this ebook was a great choice to head in that direction. It's simple, like something you would find in the library, but the story line was cute and the illustrations were wonderful. My kids couldn't put it down.

Print way to small for me, let alone my child to read. Very dissapointed- even at .99!!!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
It was a good book. The problem was with the page and text! It was so so small i can barely read it and thats even after i adjusted the the text size. I bought it for nothing pretty much. Not going to read it again. Squinting as much as i was gave me a headache. So very dissappointed.
