The organizer for the Cybils Book App category, Mary Ann Scheuer, just posted a fabulous interview on her blog with William Joyce, author of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Mary Ann also shares a speech that William Joyce gave about his inspiration for the story, which is currently number one on the New York Times Bestselling Children's Picture Books list. The app version of the book was a shortlist title for the Cybils this year.
Mary Ann says:
"I was so honored to be able to sit down with him and talk about the way new technologies like the iPad can be used to share stories with children.
Thank you to Bill Joyce, for sharing these stories with us and for taking the time to talk with me. Thank you to Simon and Schuster for arranging the interview. This interview was first shared on Katie Davis's fantastic podcast, Brain Burps About Books."
We hope that you'll take a few minutes to head over to Great Kid Books to listen.
