Hello everyone! Are you up to an adventure? I am Abby the Monkey, the friend you know from a highly-successful application series by 22learn, and I have prepared one for you! If you want to EXPLORE a strange animal island and LEARN PHONETIC LETTER SOUNDS, you shouldn’t wait a minute, and come with me!!!

But first let me tell you a story….
Once upon a time, there was an island, an island of indescribable beauty and magnificence. There found a shelter the animals small and large, slimy and furry, savage and tame—all protected from evil hunters and curious eyes, supplied with food from the bountiful earth. Each year, a special event was held, when one, and only one, person from the whole humankind was selected and transported to the island (blinded, to preserve the island’s secrecy) to appreciate its beauty and spread the word about it, so that the island would never be forgotten.

The legend has it, that deep inside the rocky hill on the island, a treasure is kept. Yet, no one knows its secret anymore because the last humankind representative had enraged the animals on the island, and since then, the animals decided never to invite anyone again, and the island got lost in time and space.

All that remains from our knowledge is that through the whole island, a very special train goes. The train has a mind of its own and likes it when the passengers’ names start from certain sounds! It is said, that if someone was ever capable to fulfill all the train’s wishes, the train would transport the lucky being deep inside the rocks and reveal the island’s precious treasure!

But, you are asking, what does all this have to do with me, monkey Abby? Well, imagine what happened to me just recently! I was flying around with my plane when, out of the blue, the storm hit and my plane got lost!

And now, I am on this weird island that looks exactly like the legendary Phonics Island I told you about! Wohoo, how exciting! But I need someone to help me with all the strange tasks the train asks me to do! Do you want to be the one who will help me, and discover the island’s treasure together with me?

Thank you for your purchase!

Jams at level 6 -- extremely annoying

My son loves to play this game but you can imagine his frustration when he is trying to drag the"y" sound animal into the train but it won't let him. The sound just keeps repeating the instructions but he can't move beyond this step. Please do a bug fix ASAP so he can continue! I hope that there are other things to do in the app after he is allowed to get to the end of this level. A matching game would be great (have the letter and say the sound and have the child select all animals starting with that sound. Moving on to blends would also be a great addition! (I.e. BL, CH, SH, CL, etc).
But hoping they at least fix this problem to the user can finish the level!!

I just purchased this for my 4 1/2yr old. It's a good game except when you have to draw the letters. I'm 30yrs old and care barely make them work. She gets so frustrated that she gives up before she gets to the parts of the game that really matter. Letters need to be fixed ASAP. Please

this is the old version!

Okay, I wrote the previous review about how it didn't work - it just opened to a black screen. I wrote the developer and they responded immediately informing me that there was an update and it hadn’t been applied to the iPhone - there is a newer version that does work perfectly - they helped me get the newer version at no charge. I was impressed with their customer service and the newer version works very well for the iPhone.
