Do you always find that there is always a missing sock when you tidy up your laundry? Or always find an odd sock? It is strictly no outdoor shoes in my house and sometimes I have noticed some guests wearing mismatched socks! Maybe you have a sock monster at home? Sock Monster is a quirky storybook adventure for iPad with original hand-crafted artwork by exciting new author/illustrator Lorna Freytag. It is suitable for ages 2 – 5 years old. Lorna is a working mum and managed to create and produce Sock Monster whilst illustrating another book for a publisher, looking after her nearly-two-year old daughter and being pregnant with her second baby.
In this app, there are a total of 10 pages of interactive games to play by following Sock Monster as he GOBBLES, MUNCHES and CHOMPS all the socks in the house! Both of my children were keen on the whole story and they spent at least 5 minutes on it. The basis of the story is to help Sock Monster to find more yummy socks! The animations and illustrations are excellent! I love how they used a real mouth on the Sock Monster! He is so cute! I hope they will turn him into a real soft toy and give him a cuddle! And of course, feed him lots of odd socks. This app costs £2.99 to download. It is an engaging and fun story and I would high recommend it for pre-school children or younger.
