'Galdo’s Gift is an absolutely Brilliant, Funny, and Engaging story. I loved reading this with my son who was blown away from the very beginning with King Galdo shouting “Come on Come on, what’s taking you so long!” My son’s face was a picture watching this character come alive!'

-Mandy McDonald  Mummys Magical Mayhem


'Galdo’s Gift brings children’s literature into the 21st Century by using digital features which really enhance the experience for the reader. There is nothing gimmicky about this ebook – it genuinely creates a more engaging and interactive experience...  All I will say is that it is one heck of an adventure that really engages any reader, and one that I enjoyed as much as my son!'

-Matt Williams


'My 6 year old daughter absolutely enjoyed reading about an adventurous kingdom! She was able to read and listen to the stories while also seeing the beautiful illustrations. Galdo’s Gift is an humorous adventure for all ages.'

'It’s a lovely mix of stunning animation and great storytelling and it’s really a unique e-book. It’s a great activity for a bit of iPad time — book reading for modern kids! My girls love reading physical books too, but this is a lovely addition and another great way to encourage the love for literature. I think it would be great for encouraging children who are not that into regular books too.'


'If you haven’t read Galdo’s Gift, the new Boovie (book in motion) by Tapocketa’s Trevor Young and Eleanor Long, you are in for a treat.  Congratulations! I Love Galdo’s Gift.'

-Nisa Riphat, Online Editor, Alex and Alexa
