Addition + Play = Making Math Fun!

Create your profile to challenge your friends! Win coins, unlock all the 20 levels, try to beat your own record and win the most challenging achievements to become a master of addition!

And, at the end of the game…SURPRISE! A fabulous certificate made especially for you to send to your parents and hang on the wall!

“Even Monsters are shy is a wonderful App that teaches us some important life lessons, a4cwsn”

Kids read, listen, touch, play and interact with Ben as he tries to help his monster Gurk overcome his shyness, teaching him that sometimes it just takes a friend and a bit of confidence to turn things around.

Not just a story, the 8 games throughout “Even Monsters Are Shy” let the reader propel the action forward. Kids will target-shoot, bounce, dress-up, balance, juggle and more through not just the 8 games, but in the additional activities and surprises found on every page.

Features original music, sound effects, and a professional actor to bring the world of Monsters to life.

Part of the Even Monsters(TM) series that has earned multiple awards and accolades, including the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the Kirkus Reviews “Best of” pick, and more.
