Join Disney’s littlest storytellers as they enter the Book of Once Upon a Time and are transported to classic Disney world’s. April, Daniel, Maddison, Max, Tyrese and Zali read about and transform into characters like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, the Lion King and more.

Paper Moose’s first foray into television production in a cute and quirky animated kids show for Disney Junior Australia & New Zealand.

Disney Junior approached us with the fourth season of their animated series ‘The Book of Once Upon A Time’ and asked us to take it in a new direction, starring kids being transported through the magic of reading into the worlds of those classic tales.

Our creative team built out a world involving a quirky talking room called the Story Room, in each episode our cast of talented young storytellers would read a tale that mirrors themselves, and be transported into the world of The Little Mermaid, the Lion King, Aladdin, Cars and more. The series was the number 2 subscription television program for kids aged ten to fourteen when broadcast, and has over 150K views on [YouTube](
