"Mobad Games has once again brought a 3D book app to the iPad for a storytelling adventure your child will not soon forget. Children will love the stunning 3D enhancements, but underneath all the special effects lies a great story with a delightful surprise ending. Recommended." Digital Storytime
"At first glance, the new Monster Isle app looks like just another simple way to entertain your kids. But dig deep into this digital children’s book and you’ll find a wealth of treasures. If you’re looking for a teaching tool that’s both fun and functional, this is definitely worth the money. It will keep young readers entertained (and educated) for hours." PadGadget
"Top production with nice 3D effects and great illustrations. Training readers can get help by touching the words and listening to how they are pronounced. Great app!" Apps4Kids
"It's a charming introduction to crytozoology for very young children, with the polysyllabic words they seem to enjoy, and gorgeously illustrated. And it has positive messages aplenty: man and manimal can live in harmony; you create your own fears; and working cooperatively is rewarding. If, as an adult, you have to read the same story every single night till your sanity gives way, this will be more pleasant than 99 per cent of the competition." - Val Stevenson, Fortean Times
"The words tell a fun and adventurous tale, yet it is certainly Jeff Miracola's illustrations that bring this story and it's beasts to life. I love that the Yowie (Australian Bigfoot) makes an appearance! This is definitely a book with kid appeal!" - The Children's Book Review
"The artwork is simply amazing!" - Michelle Raimo, animated film producer
"Here is a book that is geared towards kids, but embraces the adventurer in all of us. It's a quick read, one that will most likely please those youngsters who are just forming an interest in comics. Perfect bed time story reading material." - Ain't It Cool News
"Jeff's work has fascinated me since we first met while working on games like Dungeons & Dragons. His art and imagination were cutting-edge then, and what he brings to the children's book world is cutting-edge now." - Tony DiTerlizzi, co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles
"If I were a zombie, Jeff Miracola's brain would top my list of things to eat. And this book would be dessert." - Scott M. Fischer, illustrator of The New York Times bestseller Peter Pan in Scarlet
