The Fantastic Flying Books Bedtime Story
From the hand of legendary author / illustrator William Joyce of Toy Story and A Bug's Life comes the iPad app for The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Joyce teamed up with his friends at Moonbot Studios to create this interactive iPad book-app around the story and animated film that accompanies it. There are many twists and turns you can take in this narrative bedtime story that blurs the line between books and animation. Every page is supposed to have some delightful animated cue built in to navigate. This is what eBooks are designed to do best. Of course it doesn't hurt to have the Emmy award-winning animation of William Joyce to produce it all. John Pavlus over at Co. Design has a wonderful write-up on this iPad app by Joyce and company today. The app is available in the iTunes App store for $4.99.
