Listen and watch as the stories come alive on a phone!

November 16, 2017 05:00 pm | Updated 05:00 pm IST

Explore the wonderful world of wildlife with Watch Out! The Tiger is Here! This book is the first of four PhoneStories — specially designed to be enjoyed on mobile devices like a phone — that take you deep into the jungle and introduce you to some fascinating Indian animals, birds, and insects, and their way of life.

Created by wildlife and travel writer Sejal Mehta and award-winning cartoonist Rohan Chakravarty, these books have been narrated by stand-up comic Rohan Joshi in English.

They are available in English and Hindi in an audio-visual format, and in multiple languages on StoryWeaver.

Call of the wild

Why has the jungle erupted into sounds? In Watch Out! The Tiger is Here! you can hear the different alarm calls that warn the forest that a tiger is on the prowl.

To experience the story, all you need to do is, ask a parent to download any free QR code reader or scanner onto their phone and scan the QR code given here (don’t forget to ask for their permission!) and embark on the safari.
