New Illustrated eBook Brings More Magic to the iPad

A new, animated and interactive take on some timeless children’s classics looks to be the most elaborate use of the iPad’s controls to date. Gizmodo and Huffington Post are raving about the trailer which is either the future of literature or simply the latest, high-tech pop-up book.

New fairy tale app for iPadThe Little Mermaid and Other Stories by Hans Christian Anderson is slated to debut on June 25 and the trailer makes it look like the developers have pulled out all the stops. Every bell is rung and every whistle blown.

It looks like the app remains true to the narrative, adding fun interactive elements and stopping short of becoming a game. No price has been announced yet.

According to Gizmodo:

We chuckle when Apple calls the iPad magical, but there are a handful of apps that really make it feel that way. This is one of them.
