The Fantastic Flying Books

I really, really love The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore! Brilliantly illustrated, beautifully written, and with a spot-on musical accompaniment this short film and book adaptation is a story that every honest-to-goodness book lover knows but still loves to experience again and again. Following a disaster that leaves Mr. Lessmore with nothing but a hat, a cane, and an empty book, Lessmore finds himself the guardian of a library filled with fantastic flying books. The story follows the trials of Mr. Lessmore as he rebuilds his life in his magical library. William Joyce crafts a story about stories and the power of reading, re-telling, sharing and loving them.
