This app is written and illustrated by the award-winning Axel Scheffler. It belongs to the series of Nosy Crow's flip flap apps which also have printed counterparts. It is like a flip flap picturebook, but integrated with music and sound (optional automatic reading loud of the words). When readers swipe the screen, they can get more than 120 whimsical combinations of animal images and rhymes that highlight their main features. The combinations and poems are fun for children to listen, to copy and to play with friends. By creating new animals and their corresponding poems, the app may enhance children's creativity and broaden their imagination. This game in itself brings attention to how words are formed and invite children to wordplay. You can choose to read it yourself or have the rhymes read to you by a lovely child reader. The words are highlighted in red when you are being read to, which supports the association between the sounds and their written form. It is a rhyming text with a wonderful use of adjectives to describe the crazy animal combinations, which supports communication and language. The automatic reading function can be disabled, so the adults can read for children and to share the fun.
