Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monster Scribbles is a light-hearted story about a little boy who learns to bring the monsters he sketches to life by using his imagination. The message is a positive one, and at no time are the monsters scary -- just fun. This is not an interactive book but rather a static book presented in an app format. The illustrations don't animate nor do the words highlight as they are read aloud.
Is it any good?
MONSTER SCRIBBLES is a cute story about Duncan, a little boy who loves to draw monsters in his sketchbook. One day one of his sketches becomes "real" and teaches Duncan that he can bring the monsters to life any time he wants simply by using his imagination. The story's message is a positive and fun one, and the story is accompanied by charming pictures. There's a voice-over narration that can be turned off and on, and the language can be toggled from English to Spanish. However, this is not animated book like Little Bella's: I Close My Eyes nor one in which touching the pictures makes something happen on the screen as in Miss Spider's Tea Party.
