What a Bad Dream - Little Critter (best Android apps for kids)

Our friend Carisa, the book-app expert at Digital Storytime rated What a Bad Dream - Little Critter ($1.99) four-and-a-half stars:

"What a Bad Dream by Mercer Mayer was published in print in 1992. It tells the story of Little Critter and a dream he has where a magic potion turns him into a monster that no one wants to be around! The touching ending is one little (human) critters will readily identify with and one that will (hopefully) bring sweet dreams. The digital version of this story also adds a new twist, keeping track as the reader tries to find all the little grasshoppers and spiders (20 of each) hidden on every page."

Little Critter dreams that a magic potion turns him into a scary, disagreeable monster that no one wants to be around. In his dream, he does whatever he wants. He has cookies and ice cream for breakfast, doesn't brush his fur or fangs, never changes his clothes or takes a bath, skips school and stays up late watching TV. When Little Critter is sleepy and ready for bed, there's no one there to tuck him in and read him a story. Luckily for Little Critter, it's all just a bad dream.
