    I’m unable to find iStoryBooks in the iTunes store, either by searching or via the link above. I receive the message “The item you have requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.”

      I checked their website and Facebook page and the iTunes link is still there, but like you said it comes up as unavailable. I have sent a message to the company for more information and will post it here as soon as I hear back. But, as stated in the intro to this program, everything was current when the program was written, but apps do come and go. We’ll see what happens with this one! Thanks for alerting us.
