Which is greater: a story's need for a reader? or a reader's need for story? William Joyce's tribute a late patron of libraries forms the basis for an imaginative story in which books transform worlds, and writers capture worlds in books. Deserving of all the critical attention it receives, this is a must-have for home, school, and public libraries!
Publisher Summary
Morris Lessmore loves words, stories, and books, and after a tornado carries him to another land 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.

The book that inspired the Academy Awardwinning short film, from New York Times bestselling author and beloved visionary William Joyce.

Morris Lessmore loved words.

He loved stories.

He loved books.

But every story has its upsets.

    
Everything in Morris Lessmore’s life, including his own story, is scattered to the winds.

     But the power of story will 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.
