The Lightbird

An animated storybook for iOS devices

A fresh story devised and illustrated by children, for children. Be prepared for a unique take on some Christmassy themes in the snowy forests of the far north, with a quirky soundtrack to match.

Santa is woken from a nap, but doesn't stay grumpy for long...

Naughty bears emerge from the woods to cause trouble, but are chased off by the forces of good...

A kind-hearted Elf takes time out from her busy woodworking schedule to nurture a magical bird, and in doing so not only saves Christmas, but indirectly makes the dark forest paths safer for her co-workers during the toy-making seasons to come!
