The Lonely Beast ABC is an alphabet adventure from the world of Chris Judge’s much loved children’s book, The Lonely Beast. It’s got easy, no-fuss controls, simple interactions and lots of funny stuff to keep your little one giggling while they learn.
Chris has created 26 new interactive hand-drawn scenes featuring the Beast and his friends, to help kids learn the alphabet, discover new words and have heaps of fun all at the same time.
From (fully playable) musical instruments and dancing robots, to spinning bow ties and laughing monkeys, this is a very hands-on journey through the alphabet. Every letter has something new to play with, because we know that learning works best when kids are having fun.
To demonstrate our commitment to cutting edge technology, the app also includes a fully operational virtual light switch.

Lovely design and the kids love it!
You really have made one very giddy 3 year old excited about learning her letters. The illustrations are absolutely lovely and the overall design and app functionality is so easy for her to navigate around. Well done!
Kids love this app
Beautiful illustrations and my five children 4-12 were all engrossed. Repeatedly pressing the monkey in the zoo at the end brought huge entertainment.
