Achoo Gaboo is an interactive story for preschoolers about a clumsy elephant with a sneezing fit that won't quit. Every time Gaboo achoos, kids can pop the rainbow bubbles that trumpet from his trunk and tickle his monkey friends who giggle "bless you." Lively narration, funny rhymes and interactive animation make this imaginative story engaging for early readers.

What's New in Version 1.02
iPhone support added
What a cute story! The silly theme would certainly keep kids engaged. I like the narration and graphics - thought they were kid appropriate. Some areas to consider improving: price - too expensive for a single book, in my opinion. The other area of development would be interactivity. I thought popping bubbles and swiping to change pages was fun, but would have liked to see each word light up as it was said - would really help with developing readers. It also would be good to be able to tap on a word and hear what it is. Finally, a page count would be helpful. I felt impatient as I didn't know how long the story was. Overall, good story - it made me smile.
Great First Interactive Story
Off to a great start, and I'm looking forward to more from this company in the future. I enjoy the illustrations, sounds, and theme. The book is just plain fun to use, and it has a real professional look. The swiping and tapping is swift and has a good feel; it's responsive with quick feedback via sounds and animations. It's a book, but kids will also love how they can be part of the story by interactively tapping; I think they are going to want to read and interact with this story over and over again.
2 and 4 yr old love it!
My kids keep coming back to this app! My 2-year-old daughter loves popping the bubbles, and she thinks the monkeys are hilarious! My son, who is 4, gets more into the story. As an artist, I appreciate the high-quality artwork and visual quality of this book. I’ve that this company is a startup with more apps in development—can’t wait to see what they do!
