Amazon Appstore's Free App for June 8, 2012: Madagascar 3 Movie Storybook has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Madagascar 3 Movie Storybook.

Madagascar 3 Movie Storybook appears exclusive to the Amazon Appstore; it is normally priced at $3.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Madagascar 3 Movie Storybook is described as follows:
StoryTime brings the fun and adventure of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted to the convenience of your Android device.

Featuring genuine character audio narration and vivid images from the motion picture, this app offers parents and their children an extraordinary reading experience packed full of fun. Featuring Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo, Melman the giraffe, and more!

Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. And--of course--King Julien, Maurice, and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent--Madagascar style.
Madagascar 3 Movie Storybook is rated at 3.3 stars in the Amazon Appstore.
