The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

William Joyce
illustrated by Joe Bluhm 2012

Since the season of gift-giving is at hand, here's one of my recommendations. Madeleine particularly loves this book- which is no surprise since she is my voracious reader! Apparently there was a film short that came first but we've never seen it. Mr. Morris Lessmore ends up surrounded in a world of books (what a dream!). He takes care of them and they become his lifelong friends.

We have many other William Joyce books and have come to realize he is always full of amazing tales. The pictures are nice and even the long rectangular binding make it a little more special. It would certainly make a worthwhile gift.
