[prMac.com] Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Pixure Book Publishing is proud to announce the release of its debut title, Achoo Gaboo 1.01, an iPad reading app for kids ages 2-5, Achoo Gaboo is about a clumsy elephant who has a tickle in his trunk and a sneezing fit that won't quit. The interactive story engages children with lively narration, funny rhymes and colorful animation. Readers can tap characters for added dialogue and hidden one-liners, with a rhyming text that encourages language development.
Created by Josie Cellone, illustrated by Timothy Banks (Wilkinson Studios) and built in Unity, Achoo Gaboo features an original soundtrack and humorous sound effects to entertain and engage early readers who are learning word association. Every time Gaboo achoos, kids can pop the rainbow bubbles that fly from his trunk and tickle his monkey friends who giggle "bless you."
