Satisfying threequel

The chronicles of Grover 3 is actually good. Good characters, good action. I love Squidward. He is a great villain to Grover and Elmo. The movie's humor is great and I laughed a lot throughout.

THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK...STARRING GROVER! feels like the ebook we've been waiting for. The original book, from way back in the '70s, was a fourth-wall-breaking experience that felt practically interactive as a regular picture book. Now that the technology exists to allow Grover to really talk to his readers and actually have his readers thwart his attempts to stop the pages from turning, recreating this classic as an iPad app feels like just the right thing -- and it's very well done. Grover's narration and the accompanying animations are hilarious, and kids get a real kick out of untying his knots, pulling down his nailed-up boards, and flicking down his hastily built brick wall. There are no bonus activities or extras, but the book is enough fun as it is. You even get to hear Grover comment on the dullness of the copyright page. There's a bit of a lag between pages, but that's really the app's only flaw.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
