Pop-up books are a great way to add interactivity to an analog medium, and 'Everimal' cleverly incorporates the mechanisms of classic pop-up stories without having to rely on the delicate, papery strands that hold together most books. The story, which was written, illustrated, and designed by Lucas Zanotto, varies the physical length of its pages so that each turn reveals a new dynamic to the previous page's drawings.

Everimal tells the story of the circle of life. It starts with a bee pollinating flowers before being eaten by a frog, which is then eaten by a fish, and then a bear. The moral of the story is that the bear also likes the bee's honey, so everything relies on everything else in the ecosystem, but the dynamic pop-ups make that moral more tangible for young children.
