App: Go Away, Big Green Monster!


It must be cool for children’s book authors to get their stories to become iPhone and iPad apps. Ed Emberly’s Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Night & Day Studios is an example of one.

With this interactive app, you can read along with a friend, read along with Ed, sing along and read yourself. Move the monster’s eyes, nose, mouth, and have kids control the scary monster.

Ed Emberly has been illustrating and writing books for kids since the 60’s. He is the author of the enormously popular “How to Draw” series, coming soon to iPad and iPhones too!

The app is available worldwide for the iPhone and iPad for $2.99.  An Android version is
on itʼs way!  More info can be found at:

Overall: I read this with my 3-year-old daughter. The only criticism I have is that I think the narration is quite slow, actually too slow to read along with. My kid, the ultimate tester, said the app “was boring”. Hmmm..maybe it would be different if she was familiar with the author’s works?
