The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore iPad book app is based on the award-winning short film of the same name. The story tells of Morris Lessmore’s life after a hurricane and of his love of books and how they impact his life. Each page has a beautifully detailed illustration with text along the bottom. (The above image is a screen capture from my iPad 2; it’s been resized to fit the website’s format.) A narrator reads the story aloud. The iPad book app is interactive; swipe a page to animate the image or even play a song on a virtual piano keyboard. Setup functions let you turn off the text, turn off the narration, or select a page to jump to. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore app is for iPad only. It’s $4.99 in the iTunes app store. You can also purchase the short film from iTunes for $1.99 or $2.99 for the HD version.
