Step In Books
- a platform for truly interactive stories.
we work with authors and artists to bring stories to life on tablets and smartphones.
Step In Books is an award-winning company developing innovative experiences on mobile devices. You read a step in book just like any other digital book on your tablet or phone, but on certain pages you can lift up the device to step in to the fictional world, as described in the book. Here your mobile device acts as a magical mirror, or a portal, to look into the fictional world.
Sets completely new standards for digital children’s literature.

This is about as far from a Walt Disney production as you can get; and is proof that the iPad brings you new ways to tell a story.
— Children's Technology Rev.
Step In Books combines a strong narrative with surprising physical interaction where the tablet becomes a sort of magical mirror into the story's universe.

Wuwu & Co. is an exciting new Danish app for kids. It's called a step in book because the child can step into a three dimensional narrative space.
Ceci est une RÉVOLUTION!
Established as a front runner for digital storytelling in the Nordics, we have experience working with authors and artists, and we know how important it is to preserve and enhance the original artistic vision of the fictional work. Therefore our projects are very different and tailor-made to focus on the unique artistic properties of each fictional piece. We work closely with the creative forces behind the original work to ensure that the project is heading in the right direction.
