Imagine a picture book in which rain drops trickle from the page, steam rises from a plate of "hot cross buns," and animals scurry across the text.

A new iPad app launching June 25 brings Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales to life with an interactive, illustrated ebook that offers a high-tech reinvention of our favorite childhood tales. In this sense it's similar to the jaw-dropping Alice In Wonderland app (See it here)
