Walt Disney’s words are a distinct definition of what a traditional book wants to accomplish and even more the functionally empowered book design of interactive books. Its interactive features take the iReader on a journey of deepening thoughts, engagement and learning by doing. Where the iReader remains the navigator of “opening new doors and doing new things” and curiosity is the fuel for the whole process.
In this light the interactive book could be the source and solution to the following words of Albert Einstein:
“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”
Since it in itself generates fuel of curiosity for most people. It becomes informal learning in a formal context, which means an optimisation of the learning environment. See the animation and click the links below for more information.

This collection includes stories from different societal environments, its drama and problems. At the same time as the book also is moving on another level in an underlying story. It is a time portrayal of a crumbling industrial society. Where dark clouds are covering the sky as it is no longer is in line with the development.
The first story starts on a peaceful day on the beach. With an approaching mystery and ends in the eye of a storm in “the Lighthouse”. A new society, the digital, is showing its youthful energy as the story is leaving the lighthouse behind. Like in all times of similar transformations the engines always have been a combination of new technologies and people that have shown the way.
It is these people that are the Bordertravellers. They, who with a humanistic spirit shows the injustices in the old society but also works as the architects for the new, in both small and big contexts.
The Swedish edition of Bordertraveller stories that is available. As an ebook in bookstores all over the world and the printed hardcover edition is available in bookstores in the Nordic Countries. It can also be ordered directly from the publishing house.
In this dynamic environment, we are meeting Emmy that during her teenage-years was affected by a brutal injustice and the current norms forced her to a suffering silence. Then one day she comes back to the place everything started. Or Zoe that despite unique top competence and talent is forced in accordance with the welfare state’s norms to clean floors due to her ethnic background. But she breaks out from this imprisonment. Or the timeless struggle between humanism and religious dogmas where the latter all too often develops into a monster. Or how men with power, because it is often men, stands defenceless when the wind of change blows, but they continue like Don Quijote to fight under bloodshed against windmill after a windmill. These are just some of the perspectives that are hiding in this collection of short stories.
In general, it is empowered by the dynamism of European philosophy and history, where Erasmus, Aristotle, Sir Francis Bacon, Martin Luther among others gives fuel to the stories. Bordertravellers stories are written by LarsGoran Bostrom.
Bordertravellers stories will be published in June/July 2020 as an ebook, and later in a printed version …
