Go Away, Big Green Monster! for iPad

By Night & Day Studios, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Ed Emberley's beloved and best-selling book comes to mobile! Cleverly diecut with bold colors and overlapping pages, Go Away, Big Green Monster! is an entertaining book that turns scary into silly, and empowers kids to take control of their fears. This interactive app builds upon the book experience by progressively revealing (and then removing) each piece of the Big Green Monster-- putting all the power in the child’s hands. Add the Monster’s eyes, hair, ears, nose; poke him to see what he does and watch him as he comes to life... but don’t get scared!

-- Read Along with a Friend: be guided through the app by a funny 4 year old narrator
-- Read Along with Ed: Ed Emberley himself narrates the experience!
-- Sing Along Mode: watch as the app turns into a musical, animated experience, with music composed and performed by Ed’s granddaughter Adrian Carney.
-- Read Yourself: no narration for reading aloud with your child
-- Touch the Monster and see him react
-- Flashlight surprise ending

Caldecott award winner, Ed Emberley has been illustrating and writing books for kids since the 60's. He is the author of the enormously popular "How to Draw" series, coming soon to iPad and iPhones too!  Just as Ed has empowered young and old to get creative and start drawing, Big Green Monster enables kids to take control of the “scary” monster and learn how to not be afraid and have fun.

Customer Reviews

A favorite book turned into an amazing app!

My son always loved the book, but he adores the interactive app, Go Away, Big Green Monster! With multiple ways to experience the app, our favorite is the narration by Ed Emberly, but kids can read it on their own, read with a friend (narrated by a child), and read the book app in the form of a sing-a-long. The not-to-scary monster has physical features that are interactive, as they appear, and to disappear as the book progressive, until ultimately, the monster goes away. At the end, the happy and friendly looking monster can be seen walking away waving, and if your child drags their finger on the screen, they can see the monster in the darkness with a flashlight effect. This is a great app for early literacy, working on identifying body parts, cause and effect, and much more.I highly recommend this app!


I enjoyed this app and know my. 20 m old will too. I've seen the book but the app is 2x as entertaining but story should be longer and involve more characters.

Glow Away Big Green Monster

One of my favorite picture books and now there's an app for that! Read it with the light off and it glows. Very cool. I read it with a Pre-K class and they loved it!! Glow Away Big Green Monster!!
