Monster’s Socks is delightful, whimsical, adorable and thoroughly enjoyable. This app is one of the most captivating ebooks I’ve ever seen.
The story follows a sweet little monster who lives in a cardboard box and his journey across rivers, seas and through outer space to find his missing socks. Instead of regular page turning, the story progresses by moving the little monster across the screen. As a result the child feels a part of the story, that they are helping the monster find his socks. This clever use of touch screen technology is what sets ebooks apart from regular books. Don’t get me wrong, I am huge fan of numerous regular children’s books, but I do get excited to see my children enjoying the ‘more’ or added experiences ebooks are capable of delivering. Interactive books are a hugely untapped area of app development in my opinion, I look forward to meeting our next family favourite.
