Ghost Knigi - by Benjamin Sommerhalder
Ghost Knigi is a little, but friendly ghost child that's handed a book on his birthnight. However the pages are blank and he can't read them, nor any other books in the Ghost Library, that is until he learns to think a different way, and then the book he's given and the book you are reading comes alive.
This is the first book I've read in it's entirety on my iPad admittedly it's on 24 pages so no incredible task but I love reading it on there. For two reasons - 1) it's a beautiful allegory of the need for imagination when reading 2) It looks absolutely fantastic on my iPad. I don't have children myself but I can't wait to show it to my nephews to see what they think.
There isn't yet much content in the iBook store yet (I'm sure that will change), but I really recommend giving this one a read.
