Illustrator Timothy Banks recently created the artwork for Achoo Gaboo, an interactive children’s app that follows a sneezing elephant who can’t stop blowing bubbles.

Tim developed the charming cast of characters, hand-lettered the text and painted the scenery to give the digital story a handcrafted feel. There are fun animations and a handful of jokes to entertain young readers — and their parents.

Here’s what people are saying about the app:

“All the hallmarks of a classic picture book alongside thoughtful enhancements.” –

“Achoo Gaboo is a delightful reading experience that will send young kids into fits of laughter… Highly recommended.” –

“A new classic!” @AppsEdTech

The app, which won a Gold Medal from the Mom Choice Awards, is available here.

Great job, Tim!
