Me want a cookie…

Callaway Digital Arts, the team behind the fantastic iOS versions of the classic Monster at the End of This Book series of books and a number of great Thomas The Tank Engine apps is back with an all-new app for kids called The Great Cookie Thief.

Starring the lovable Sesame Street character Cookie Monster, The Great Cookie Thief will let your little sleuths help “track down the crumb-y feller, who’s been stealing all the cookies in town”.

The (universal) app is currently on sale at a special launch price of 99¢. If previous Callaway Digital Arts titles are any indication, its regular price will probably be $4.99.

According to the developer, the full list of features include:

  • Engaging activities that build visual identification and observation skills
  • More than 100 surprise animations when characters are tapped
  • Stunning graphics and animations optimized for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch
  • Automatic word highlighting for beginning readers
  • A creative play space with painting and stickers to create unlimited wanted posters
  • More than 20 parent tips to help children practice memory skills, build vocabulary, inspire imagination, and much more
