Favorite Book Apps: Mr. Morris Lessmore

Let's start with the best of the best, shall we?   
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Moonbot Studios
I measure all other Book Apps by this one, and so far the rest fall short.   This interactive story has everything you could want in a story, let alone in an interactive app.   It was the first Book App to hit #1 on the iPad App Store - and for good reason.  
 iTunes Description:
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 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 MGM Technicolor musicals.  "Morris Lessmore" is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

I'm so crazy about this app that I think having it is enough reason to go out and get an iPad (in case you needed one more reason to get an iPad)!  Oh and don't miss the screen where the characters are lined up to check out books.  Pull the books over the characters and watch what happens.

You won't want to close this post without checking out the video below.  Sign up for Fireflies now, so that you don't miss future Book and Learning Apps reviews.
