In truth, it is one of the most powerful online resources I have seen in quite a while.... Friendly controls provide an easy interface for creating images, books and even movies.... a very highly recommended site.

While there had been a few open source programs similar to Kid Pix… they don’t hold a candle to one of my new fave’s… Kerpoof! And what’s the cost of Kerpoof? Oh yeah… Free. - Steve Dembo, "Kerpoof! Eat your heart out Kid Pix" Discovery Educator Network Blog (10/4/07)

When I first reviewed Kerpoof.com a few months ago, I was very impressed with the potential for creativity and literacy explorations. [Now it’s] an even better choice.... It includes many of the aspects of traditional PC-based drawing and creativity applications for children, while adding in new social tools. - Chris Harris, "Kerpoof - All that and MORE!"
