Don't be scared… as the Big Green Monster comes to life!

Ed Emberley’s beloved and best-selling book comes to mobile! Cleverly diecut with bold colors and overlapping pages, Go Away, Big Green Monster! is an entertaining book that turns scary into silly, and empowers kids to take control of their fears. This interactive app builds upon the book experience by progressively revealing (and then removing) each piece of the Big Green Monster– putting all the power in the child’s hands. Add the Monster’s eyes, hair, ears, nose; poke him to see what he does and watch him as he comes to life… but don’t get scared!

Caldecott award winner, Ed Emberley 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! Just as Ed has empowered young and old to get creative and start drawing, Big Green Monster enables kids to take control of the “scary” monster and learn how to not be afraid and have fun.
