Former Pixar Animator And Moonbot Studios Create Surreal iPad Storybook

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a fascinating new ‘iPad Storybook’ that recently hit the App Store. Developed by Moonbot Studios and lead by an ex-Pixar animator, William Joyce, the book is an intriguing mix of book, animation and game.

Put yourself in Morris’ shoes as you dive into the story of Mr. Lessmore and his flying friends through Moonbot Studios’ first Interactive Storybook. In this reinvention of digital storytelling you can repair books, tumble through a storm, learn the piano and even get “lost in a book,” flying through a magical world of words, giving you a dynamic journey through the story.

Available on the iPad App Store for $4.99, the book contains sequences where you have to interact with the iPad app in order to progress through the story. It includes such activities such as drawing, playing a piano, playing with food and a number of mini-games. It looks like a tonne of fun, jump the break for a beautiful trailer of the interactive Storybook.
