Fantastic Flying Books

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore iPad App Trailer from Moonbot Studios on Vimeo.

I just downloaded William Joyce’s “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore”, an interactive narrative experience for the iPad. The app impressively blurs the line between picture books and animated film. I kept flipping pages in sheer amazement. If only I could look at it with the eyes of a kid. Magical!

  11. Tina, thank you for posting this – my five year old and I were both entranced by it (me actually more than him!). So many clever, funny, quirky elements to it, a very rich word and visual experience, and I am a confirmed book-lover!
