I was very happy to be able to review The Tailor's Tales which is an eBook for kids. It's avaiable on the iPad only and from Almiss. This is the first installment of a new series of digital books for children.
Hidden in the midst of this book are jolly verses, delightful fairy-tales and colorful illustrations, brought to life with the lightest of touches. Who exactly is Cowboy Bruise, where did the Dough run away to, why did the Fingers argue and who is Glutton the ogre afraid of? This wonderful book, a genuine find for those who still believe in miracles and are waiting for one, will tell you all this and more.
‘The Tailor’s Tales’, has received extremely warm reviews from both young and old alike, and has been translated into various languages. The digital version of this book will transcend geographical borders, making the stories open and accessible to all.
The book is very cute, just like the author says, for young and old. It is written in rhyme, much like Dr. Seuss, and I did catch myself smiling a few times within each story. The book contains nine different stories, all from the perspective of The Tailor.
I have also included some of the pictures from each story. There are a lot more pictures without it becoming a "picture book." However, I wanted to be careful not to give away each story, therefor I didn't include any pictures that had parts of the story on it.

I love the pictures, they are cute and childlike, without being cartoonish. Again, the stories are cute and will leave you to ponder, especially with the questions that are posed at the beginning.
