Sparky the Shark – A Frighteningly Funny Adventure Children’s Storybook Deluxe, is a fun and interactive iPad storybook featuring a friendly, but misunderstood shark who tries to change himself to fit in — but eventually discovers that’s not the problem. As far as sharks go, Sparky is one of the nicest sharks you’ll ever meet, but people are always scared of him. Actually, Sparky is a super nice shark who just wants to hang with people, but for obvious reasons people do not want to hang with him — do you think it could be his large imposing teeth? The story starts off when Sparky notices a sign on the beach that says “No Sharks Allowed.” Sparky tells his best pal Dax (a penguin) that he cannot go to the beach anymore, which really bothers him, and what about that Sand Sculpting Competition? The story continues on into an adventure as Sparky tries various silly ways to disguise his outer physical appearance so that he’ll fit in better, but it is not until a “Eureka” moment that the big dopey shark finally gets it.
Sparky The Shark is a well done kids’ iPad storybook with plenty of animations and interactions for kids to find, as well as kid-friendly navigation for getting around. There are 2 reading modes, one narrated and one without the narrator for children to read along at their own pace by themselves or with others. At the end of this book there is a Fun section that gives children (and adults) the opportunity to dress up Sparky with some goofy items that go along with the story, which can then be saved to the user’s camera roll. Sparky the Shark – A Frighteningly Funny Adventure Children’s Storybook Deluxe is an amusing story with real world application that is sure to make a positive impact on your child as he or she learns a valuable lesson along with Sparky and Dax.

This story is about self discovery and the desire for acceptance and understanding. Sparky and his friend Dax don’t understand why people are afraid of Sparky. Sparky desperately wants to go to the Sand Sculpture competition and not ruin it for everyone. So they embark on an adventure to change particular aspects of Sparky’s appearance. They visit 3 funny locations where Sparky tries changing his teeth, covering his fin and finally disguising himself by wearing a costume. But every time Sparky tries to change his appearance, it doesn’t work. Instead he looks hilarious or absurd and they end up laughing so hard, they fall to the floor. He asks his wise old Grandpa for advise. In the end, Sparky proves to himself and everyone else, that he is a good shark and he just had to be himself. Grandpa was right and Sparky is a hero.

The musical background made the story come to life, and with the ability to read by yourself or with a narrator made the story all the more interesting. Fantastic animation and interactivity to keep the kids engaged. The fun disguises page is a real bonus with dressing up Sparky. We loved it, highly recommend.”
