handcrafting digital experiences to tell truly
interactive stories for children and lovers of art.

Step In Books is an award winning company that explores spatiality in relation to narratives by letting you “step into” the story worlds. By taking advantage of the unique features of digital media, we are able to create a truly intuitive, interactive, and immersive way of telling stories.

Our projects include Wuwu & Co. - a magical picture book, Mur - a step in book, and Seven Minutes in the Warsaw Ghetto app.

our work.

"The coldest winter in 2.000 years". Wuwu & Co. is our first published step in book where the reader follows the adventures of five odd creatures, who need your aid. 

The story is written by Merete Helle, illustrated by children’s book illustrator Kamila Slocinska, with interaction design by Tim Garbos and directed by Aksel Køie. Wuwu & Co. – A magical picture book won the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award 2016, is produced and developed by Step In Books, and is now available for on the AppStore , on Google Play Store and on Amazon.

Mur – a step in book, is a beautiful, interactive and musical app built to augment the Finnish children’s book, “A bear called Mur” by Kaisa Happonen and Anne Vasko, about a bear in the Finnish forest who loves the winter and doesn’t feel for hibernating.

The app won the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award 2017 and is targeted kids aged 4 – 8 and is available on the AppStore and on Google Play Store. Mur - a step in book will be sold together with the Mur book all over the world in about 50.000 copies.

Seven Minutes in the Warsaw Ghetto is an award-winning stop motion film, which tells the story of a boy in the nazi-occupied Warsaw during World War 2.

This atmospheric masterpiece of a short film was directed by Johan Oettinger and is now available on the AppStore and on Google Play Store. We at Step In Books are incredibly excited to have been working on this project, and to take interactive storytelling to the next level.
