Shelfari edited the description of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore Saturday, February 11, 2012.
From New York Times bestselling author and beloved creator William Joyce, a tender tribute to books and the lasting power of story. Morris Lessmore loved words. He loved stories. He loved books. But every story has its upsets. With one gust of wind, Morris Lessmore’s world is shifted. Everything he knew, everything he hoped for, would be tested. But the power of story would save the day. Stunningly brought to life by William Joyce, one of the preeminent creators in children’s literature, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a modern masterpiece, showing that in today’s world of traditional books, eBooks and apps, it’s story that we truly celebrate—and this story, no matter how you tell it, begs to be read again and again.
