Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

"Spoon and the Moon" is an exceptionally unique Android app. Wickedly Sisters/Davis Studio LLC have ingeniously created a literary app that will become a favorite. The theme is based on the old nursery rhyme:

“Hey diddle diddle,
The Cat and the fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the moon,
The little Dog laughed to see such sport,
And the Dish ran away with the Spoon.”

The appearance is folk artsy with a contemporary undercurrent. The illustrations are beautifully done my Marie Davis; she has included illustrations that appear to be ink and pencil drawings of the cow, moon, fiddles, and dragonflies and of course the spoon and cow. Davis and Margaret Hultz are the Wickedly Sisters. The theme song was written by Jenrose Fitzgerald and many other musicians have also contributed.

Note: This is not a fairy tale for your children; it has also some adult themes. Don’t let the folksy look fool you. This is a cool fresh form of media that tells the story of a cow, a dog, and a cat playing the violin. Maria Davis is responsible for the illustrations. This new style of literature is called multimedia iNovel app. When you download this app you will find animations, music, and interactive features.

The subject matter will bring laughter as well as tears. It is my understanding that the reader will be able to add more content to this as time goes on. The app is very user-friendly. I highly recommend this inovel.
