The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore
You’ll love this eBook, no matter how old you are
It’s hard to know where to start, as there is so much to enjoy. Having started life as a short film, inspired by the likes of The Wizard of Oz, Morris Lessmore now finds himself as the star of an interactive eBook.
Its interactive nature and heart-warming story will dazzle kids and engage adults using the in-story mini-games and beautiful artwork.
The app describes itself as being old-fashioned and cutting-edge at the same time, as the CGI animations bring to life a world that looks straight out of a silent movie. The story is a great balance of joy and sadness that makes it perfect bedtime reading, and clearly aims to remind people why we love books, and perhaps crucially, a good tale.
The visuals are beautiful, enveloping you in Lessmore’s world of flying books. The navigation is easy, and therefore ideal for children, with a pop-up sidebar that allows you to select a page and change the audio settings.
Perhaps the only way the app isn’t unique is in its eBook format, whereby you swipe to turn the page. But that is where familiarity ends, as each page comes with only a short amount of text, instead relying on the animation and interactive features to tell the story.
No matter your age, you should download Fantastic Flying Books.
Breathtaking visuals and heart-warming story, about as close to perfect as an app can get.
