Books and novels are slowly evolving as people and publishers begin to explore how to incorporate the freedoms that e-books gives them into the storytelling and reading processes. An adaptation of the 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' short film by author-illustrator William Joyce and co-director Brandon Oldenburg shows us one way in which people can utilize these freedoms by creating an interactive reading experience.

Unveiled by Moonbot Studios, a multi-platform company specializing in storytelling, 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' short film has been recently released as a narrative app. Available on iTunes, it presents an alternative storytelling experience by blending together elements of animated films with e-books, allowing the reader to animate each page with the touch of their finger, therefore having a say in how it unfolds.
