The iPad has done wonders for revolutionizing storytelling, especially for young readers.

Newly released storybook Mimi Good & Bibi Bad has taken that idea one step further, by encouraging a new form of interactivity. The story tells the tale of two children at school: Mimi and Bibi, two English kids who find themselves at a school in the US. It’s a fun fish out of water tale, starting with a talent contest and introducing other characters such as Mimi’s best friend Melani and teacher Mrs Quackenbush.

The cool twist comes in the form of being able to rotate the iPad in order to switch from kind Mimi to naughty Bibi. It’s a very neat move that should keep kids particularly engrossed in the storyline.

Even better for young children, Peppa Pig’s Mummy Pig is the narrator for the app, otherwise known as Morwenna Banks.

Mimi Good & Bibi Bad is out now priced at $1.99.
