"The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore" by William Joyce Next » 2 of 8 « Prev
Meet Morris. He loves words. He loves stories. He loves books. But every story has its upsets.

One day, everything in Morris’ life, including his own story, is scattered by a tremendous storm. Eventually, Morris finds himself in an abandoned library where the books are alive and beat their covers like the wings of birds. The books flutter around him protectively and watch as he begins to write again.

He cares for them, and they for him, as he works to complete his story.

Underneath this book-about-books, lies a deeper story about loss, love and healing.
