Richard Scarry would have loved the iPad

Back in April we penned these words when reviewing the wonderful Alice for iPad, "Children's books have a special place in the history of print. When we have long forgotten the magazines, newspapers and school textbooks of yesterday, we will always remember our favourite children's storybook. For me, and perhaps for many of you, it was Richard Scarry's classic, 'Busy Busy World'. When TV shows and movies failed us with their fast edits and complex themes, storybooks provided the perfect pace and relaxed re-reading experience that our young minds required."

Alice for iPad introduced 2D physics based interaction to a classic story book, now The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross adds sophisticated 3D animated illustrations and text along with professional quality narration.

We have yet to play with The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross, but as soon as we do we will report back with a full review.
