Interactive eBooks as iPad apps

Here's part 2 of my quest for interactive eBooks  - those that come in the form of iPad apps. (Part 1 - online books)   Many more options here!  There is a range from the very book-like - a few moving pictures with audio narration and music - to the more game-like, with lots of things to touch and do within the story.  Because these are paid apps, you need to purchase one app for each iPad you wish to load -  a bit of a logistical challenge, but not impossible.  Cost seems to range from about $1 to about $6,  I'd love to hear which story apps appeal to you for content and age appropriateness.  This would help me as I think about how to spend our app budget next year!
For younger students:
gary's place (actually this might already be loaded on the ls apps site)
fairy tale books from Noisy Crow, including Jack and the Beanstalk (hmm - maybe too game-like?
sos dinos in distress  also the Poppin Princess
frankin frog  (also parker penguin)  fiction/info mix

for older readers:
