Love the message!

Beautiful illustrations, love the story and message. Teaches that you just need a little confidence to try to overcome a little shyness, and show everyone who you are. The monster doesn't change his personality, but instead finds the strength from his friend to overcome his fear of people/monsters!

Great interactive book

My 3.5 year old enjoys this. It's a cute story and has great graphics and sounds (a tad funny too.) It is a single "book" so older kids will find limited replayability, but at 3 they like to do the same things over and over. Definitely worth $2 when comparing to all of the other garbage on the App Store.

Love it

Really helped my 3.5 year old learn how to introduce herself. So cute and gender neutral with practical suggestions for making friends subtlety infused in the cute story and engaging games.
