Want to make your book interactive? A new company called Interactive Touch has a free toolset that can help you turn your eBook into an interactive app with animation and sound effects.

The company just announced a new partnership with children’s book publisher Red Chair Press. Interactive Touch worked with the publisher to create a series of interactive kids books called the Funny Bone Readers’ series, six of which are currently available. The publisher ambitiously plans to release an additional 18 interactive titles before Christmas.

The above video demonstrates how the platform works.
