      We're expecting out first grandchild any day now. Our purchase of "Goodnight Lad" was a preemptive strike. Wish gander unknown, is there a female version?

      David - I'd gladly send you a new set of cards. I just sent you a personal message, email me back when you get a chance.

      Migrated off cell phones for my grandkids to a couple of kindle Fires. Let me tell you it was as if they were getting it for the first time. They can not put down the tablet and have mastered it better than the cellphones. I purchased 2 books but I can not find the little cards and can not find the email for the little girl and now I am getting were is the other things. Is it possible to send me an email with the QR codes to scan if that will work. THanks

      Robert - There are two pages at the beginning of the book that give instructions. The right one is the settings page. Here's what it should look like this:…

      Yeah the back of the book. It pops up sporadically. Where do I access options?

    6. Bradley Grimm 3-time creator on December 9, 2015

      Jann - I sent you a personal message with the tracking number. Let me know if you have any questions.

      Hi, I still haven't received my book. Do you perhaps have any tracking number for me?

    8. Bradley Grimm 3-time creator on December 8, 2015

      Robert - When you say the back page, are you referring to the back cover (with the barcode)? Because the back cover doesn't have any animations associated with it.

      The back page seems to be a little hard to pick up on the iPhone. Every time I get it to show up it disappears. Is there a fix for this?

      is there an update of the android app with translations ?

    12. Bradley Grimm 3-time creator on August 31, 2015

      Daniele - Translations are almost in. We are hoping to have them in over the next few weeks. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

    13. Bradley Grimm 3-time creator on August 31, 2015

      George - I sent it over two months ago. They claim the average shipping time is 3-5 weeks, so it is well past the normal time frame. I'll ship you a replacement copy, check for my email.

    14. George Malekkos on August 31, 2015

      hello,still haven't received my book
      have you send it?

    15. Daniele on August 29, 2015

      The book and app look and sound great!
      In the campaign it was specified that the app would allow to read the story in other languages (we speak Italian).
      When is this feature going to be implemented?
      Since the text is repeated as superimposed image in the app, it should also be possible to translate the text displayed by the app.

      @Bradley got my book a few weeks ago and the kids just loved it. I back your first campaign and was super excited when you made a second attempt at it. Well done and congrats to you and your family. Please give a big thank you to the animator as well. I hope you consider doing more books.

      Bradley - I have just received my order here in deepest darkest Borneo and as per all the great comments below it was like opening and viewing a piece or miraculous magic! Absolutely mind blowing. You deserve all the rewards now yourself from all your hard work and incredible conception of a truly original and amazing book. All the very best to you and your family - you must all be very proud indeed. An amazing latest addition to your already great family!

      Thanks Johnathan - never would have picked that. I was getting narration through my bluetooth headphones but not the phone's speakers.

      Johnathan Barnard on July 22, 2015

      For those of you without narration, make sure your ringer isn't set to silent via the switch on the side of your iPhone/iPad. It works perfectly once this is done.

      Received mine today in Australia. Great work. Narration doesn't work on my iPhone. Is there some I'm missing?

    32. Pamela P on July 21, 2015

      Received my copies of the book the other day and think it's awesome. However, I also had problems with narration. Specifically, I wasn't able to change the narration to an alternative...I just couldn't get it to scroll over to select anything else. I was using an Android device.

      I received my book in France. Great job.

    34. Valerie on July 20, 2015

      Love this book! However, it works great on my iPhone6, but when we use the iPad 2 gen it crashes frequently and that's frustrating. Let me know when you get a fix for that. Great job with the book, it's loads of fun to show off!

      Got the book today. When i got the package my first reaction was about the size.
      But after looking at the book i'm happy with the result. And right on time for my nephews birthday.

      Keep up the good work.

    37. Bradley Grimm 3-time creator on July 19, 2015

      Jason - Most international orders don't have tracking information. Some have emails (others didn't). I sent you direct message with the details of your package.

    38. Jason wingrove on July 18, 2015

      for intl postage is there any tracking numbers or emails sent out when they're posted?

      I also got it yesterday and it was great for my children! It works as the creator mentioned and my kids are quite interested in the unique interactive book. However, just one time, it failed to aim at the book, so I closed the app and re-booted it. Fortunately, the problem was solved. It is a marvelous gift for children. Thanks.

    40. Robert Cote on July 17, 2015

      Got my shipment yesterday, was perfect as expected, kudos to you and your team Bradley, great job. I didn't get a chance to go into the book but I was able to download the app and try it out on the shirt, you may want to look into that. I feel like the message displayed under the family is upside down, I can try to send you a screen shot if that helps? The message itself looked good, just looked flipped. It's possible maybe i'm doing something wrong?

    41. Joe on July 17, 2015

      Got mine yesterday in England. Absolutely amazing. As with other comments I'd love to see one twice the size, and look forward to seeing another book.
      It's got me wondering though about applications outside of fun bedtime stories. Any chance this could be used in education to bring to life otherwise flat books? Visualising a heart, or a skeleton in 3D, or seeing the animation of how an engine works as examples?

      My son absolutely LOVES this book (heck, I even love it). This is the COOLEST thing EVER. I have used augmented reality apps before on iDevices, but this is the first time I have seen on actually just work, without issues. I just need to say: hats off to the Grimm family! You guys have come out with a great product that my son will enjoy for years to come. I am anxious to see what other books you come out with in the future. Keep me on your email list, I am ready to buy!

      Received my book yesterday - all the way over here in England.

      Like other commenters have said - the physical size was smaller than I had anticipated, but this doesn't detract from the experience in any way - the book is just....magical! It's the only word I can think of to do it justice. It's going to be a birthday gift for my nephew, and I'm going to have to be disciplined to not give it to him sooner!

      Great job all the way through the project. I wish you all the best with your future efforts.


    44. Steven Black on July 16, 2015

      Hi Bradley, my son loves it! Only issue is that the app on an iPad mini keeps crashing. Fine on iPhone 6 but the iPad mini is his so would be great if you had a possible fix if a known issue? Thanks

    45. stoob on July 16, 2015

      Just received the book, downloaded the app, and astounded people in my office with it :) Can't wait to show my son tonight! Wonderful project, thank you!

    46. Steven Black on July 16, 2015

      Brilliant book and app! Job very well done.
      Looking forward to any future features and other books released. Friends are impressed to so other orders coming your way.

      I got my book yesterday and read it to the kids - they loved it, but I couldn't get the sound to work. Any suggestions?

      Laura on July 14, 2015

      Received my book in the mail earlier this week. Couldn't wait to open and read through it with the app. My first observation was that the book itself was a lot smaller than I had expected, ie. than most children's board books that I own. But once I started using the app I forgot about the book size and was mesmerized by what was happening on the pages. I can hardly wait for Lily to appear.
      What makes this book so good is the adorable animation, combined with the bright colors, which children are drawn to anyway. It also makes quite a difference with the background music. The narration was also spot on. Great job!

      Received yesterday - my toddler highly approves! She was very fascinated with the book coming to life on her tablet. App crashed once on our Nexus 7 2nd gen - but hey, that might be a problem with the tablet rather than the app :) Thank you, Grimm family, for bringing this project to life.
