The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Children's book author and illustrator William Joyce has created a real gem that can be enjoyed by anyone of any age that has a love of books. I first saw the animated short film, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore at San Jose's Cinequest 2011, and was ecstatic to see the book arrive in the library soon after it was published in 2012.

Check out and watch the academy award winning short animated film and the book in the children's area to experience a magical story adventure for the love of books. It's utterly charming and may even make you shed a tear (in the same way that those first ten minutes in Pixar's animated film Up did).
