The Monster at the End of This Book… starring Grover!

 

The Monster at the End of This Book... starring Grover! by Callaway Digital Artsand Sesame Workshop Apps has been garnering many awards and staying in the limelight. This book is a wonderful example of how the digital age has taken a great book and almost made it better. Almost, because is there really anything better than having your mom read you a bedtime story? Maybe.... if it is Grover, the loveable, furry creature that has been around for decades, and the original story, published in 1971 and written by Jon Stone, integrity intact, and then “just the right” amount of interactivity is added….. This book app does just that. It engages without taking away from the story, it would make Jim Henson proud. Kids adore the enhancements of helping to turn the pages by taking down blockades, untying knots, and knocking down brick walls, all while deciding how long to stay on each page.

Loads of giggle guaranteed here for participants of all ages, and be prepared to return to this classic over and over.
