Monster Moogle is an iPad app that features an interactive story designed to teach students that “monsters” are fiction. The story is narrated by a friendly dog named Butch. In the story Butch tells kids about what people think monsters are. Throughout the story students can interact with the drawings on the page.
Monster Moogle is kind of quirky and it might not be for everyone, but I kind of like the message that monsters are fiction. In the future version of the app students will be able to create their own monsters through a collage process. That feature hasn’t been released yet. When that feature is released I will be more inclined to pay the $1.99 price for the app.
