No, this rollicking yarn is not about a dangerous hole in the ground. It concerns the carelessly discarded remains of a peach. When Katie flings away a peach pit, she sets off a momentous chain of events, "for the pit hit a cat / who ran into the street / and made a car bump / into a fireplug." As fire engines approach and water gushes from the hydrant, "daredevil Danny" the skateboarder surfs through the town and out to sea.
The Perilous Pit is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn. The app is based on Orel Odinov Protopopescu’s book by the same name illustrated by Jacqueline Chwast.
Key features include
Three ways to read the book.
▶ "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.
▶ "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
▶ "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
Features on each page
▶ Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
▶ Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
▶ Touch a word to hear it being spoken.
