The fantastic flying books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce

Title:  The fantastic flying books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Author:  William Joyce

Collection:  Children’s EZ Books

Morris Lessmore loves words, stories and books, and after a tornado carries him to another land, dreary and colorless, he finds a single book in color that leads him to an amazing library where, he learns, the books need him as much as he needs them.

Fantastic is inadequate to describe this book by William Joyce.  And not only is the story a book, but it is also an exciting, groundbreaking app that can be enjoyed on an iPad, but it also won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Short Film.  An instant classic that you absolutely must check out at the library.
