  • The Great Pumpkin

    by spencerward21

    It is a awesome app

  • Great idea for a family tradition

    by Yammima

    How fun!

  • Kids really enjoy this app

    by Allnicknamesaretaken.v19

    Parents enjoy the throwback to our own youth. The only thing missing was, in fact, my favorite part of the original. How could you skip the WWI fighter ace scene?

  • So Beautiful an App!

    by SLK2014

    It's everything and more. You get to interact with the Peanuts gang. The music is superb! The ambience is real. Top notch. Handsomely done!

  • Great app

    by BChaney83

    I live that I can share Charlie brown with my kids!

  • Great fun!

    by Chilled0717

    Even adults will enjoy this interactive book. It keeps kids busy and helps them with reading when they touch on the words. Great app.

  • Great Story Every Year

    by Not as useful as it could be.

    The kids and I enjoyed this greatly.

  • Classic

    by Calibabiee

    I found this app at Starbucks and fell in love with Peanuts again. A childhood classic for years! The stories are priceless & the games are adorable. Love it!!

  • Great app!

    by SJCEO

    Love how the kids can tap words and read.

  • Best app ever

    by Lmpagans

    I thought it would be kind of boring but I love it. Got it from Starbucks pick of the week. "Thank you Starbucks and Apple."

  • The Great Pumpkin App will rise out of the App Store...

    by John_3:16

    As a kid, I read about The Great Pumpkin, and loved the story. Later, I read it to my kids, and watched the video. Now, it's in latest format, the GP provides a nice blend of the two versions, and allows you to insert yourself ( okay, maybe your kid :-) into the storyline. As someone who is still out there, looking for a sincere pumpkin patch to visit, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the GP, I heartily recommend this app to prepare for the adventure. You can also practice a little piano playing with Schroeder. Linus and I hope to see you in the pumpkin patch next Halloween. :-)

  • Great app

    by ellios

    I'm 26 and I enjoy this app. It's a classic from my childhood that I grew up with. I love the interactions with the story. This app is definetly worth buying. Hope to see Charlie Brown thanksgiving story on the App Store. Will get it if it does appear.

  • A Cute and Creative Storybook!

    by IslandBlooms

    It's ok I like that it reads the story to you and u get to carve a pumpkin but I wish u could dress up a character and go to the party I also wish I didn't have to pull down the book mark I love the things that it has but I just wish there was so much more than the story and carve the pumpkin
