Saw this on the Last Express Facebook page (381 likes! Coincidentally the total number of people who have played the game!) and it's great news. I don't own an iPad, but the game is a good fit for the device because of its clicky, Myst-like interface.
Speaking of TLE, two interesting articles have emerged recently. One details the art of the game, and the other describes the game as art.
I played the demo of Little Big Adventure back when it came out. Would quite like to have another look at it.
