The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Description

The award-winning short film is now an interactive narrative experience. William Joyce's "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore", blurs the line between picture books and animated film.

Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

When's the next one coming!

My family loves this app. This book shows how brilliant the iPad and Ebooks can be for kids. Because it is so good, it is a bit disappointing that the last few pages with the little girl don't 'work'. I am sure that this will be fixed in the next update. It is definitely worth buying the app, your kids (and husband) will love it. Please make another one soon.

Wonderful

I can't believe there aren't more interactive story books like this. Classic, wondrous, magical, beautiful. It brings tears to my eyes every time. My daughter 2.5 (and her dad) are spellbound by every moment and read Morris almost every single night. Truly magical iPad storybook interactive charm. Buy it. For goodness sake!!

Slight problem on app

The first page when the little girl appears then repeats the words when she is seen outside on the next page. It appears to be getting mixed up in this spot.. The book also does not fly towards her when touched.
