**Special Introductory Price: Only $.99!**
Pete the Cat wants to groove along with his friends at the school concert, but he can’t find his guitar! Help Pete the Cat find his guitar and search for hidden objects all throughout Pete’s school. Once you find it, rock out with Pete at the school concert—or jam on Pete’s guitar all by yourself! You can even unlock a hidden 3D Pete who will play along with you (hint: grab your favorite Pete the Cat book to start grooving). It’s all good!
The bestselling and beloved Pete the Cat series now includes this groovy new app in which kids can play a fun hidden object game as Pete travels through his school looking for his guitar. The objects change each time you visit the classroom, the schoolyard, the cafeteria, or the school bus for endless fun! And best of all, after the first time you play, you unlock the School Jam game and Free Play mode. In the School Jam game, tap the strings of the guitar when prompted, a la Guitar Hero, while Pete and the Cool Cats play Rocking in My School Shoes. In Free Play mode, play Pete's guitar and watch him strum along in 3D!
•Search and find randomly hidden objects throughout four locations in Pete's school
•Discover fun animations and interactive hiding spots
•Play the School Jam game, a quick tap game while you listen to Rocking in My School Shoes
•Play Pete's very own guitar in Free Play mode
An extra bonus on iPad2 and above:
•Point your device in Free Play mode at any Pete the Cat book and watch a 3D Pete strum along in augmented reality

Not what we expected
My 4 yr old LOVES the books so i thought id get the app. Quite disappointing. I was hoping that those 4 books could come to life after you completed the puzzle, each with their own song. The hidden objects are small and sometimes behind other items so for a 4 yr old yo find them is tricky. The guitar's touch sensory is not sensitive for little fingers so it does not work properly when you want to play along. App needs much improvement. Please add songs from all 4 books as a reward for finishing the puzzles. Not worth 99cents at the moment. It almost just got 1 star, but we love pete. So please improve, add more features and games. It is supposed to be educational, not just a time killer. My child gets frustrated and bored with this app, even though he wants to play it so badly.
Bonus Does Not Work
My four-year-old son was so excited for Pete the Cat to "magically appear" as repeated over and over in the app. He used his own money to buy a Pete the Cat book so he could point the iPad at the cover and "rock out" with Pete the Cat. But, guess what, nothing happens. The screen goes black and you get an "OCAR Failed to Load" error. Fun! (Not.)
When you make an app for kids, and you're promising them things, it better work.
We have an iPad 2 and an iPad 3 (proper equipment) and have deleted and reinstalled the app and restarted the iPad(s) to no avail. Same result each time.
My son was literally crying because he was so excited and looking forward to this. Shame on you Harper Collins!
Not very much to the app. Hide and seek was fun once for my 4 year old, but she has no interest in repeating it. There is little substance to the "rock out" bit either. We've tried 5 different books (buttons, white shoes, Christmas, sunglasses, wheels on bus) with the camera button; the top of the screen goes into camera mode, and you can see the book, but nothing happens after that. I suspect it's because we have versions ordered through scholastic reading club and not Harper Collins. Disappointing.
