Steve Jobs may have been dreaming of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore when he introduced the iPad as a "magical and revolutionary" device.
Morris Lessmore is a charming interactive iPad book that follows the journey of Morris and his flying books as they travel through a world of words. But, rather than simply following along or watching illustrations, the app includes enough mini-games and other interactivity to engross any reader.
The book is a companion to the short film of the same name, "a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor." Both the book and the app were created by Moonbot Studios, led by ex-Pixar animator William Joyce.
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is available as an iPad App for $4.99 [iTunes] and as a short film for $1.99 [iTunes].
