Take 15 minutes and be swept away by this beautifully animated short The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. This is a beautiful and magical story of the books and the love we have for them. It is a love that never goes away – any book lover knows this. It is a story that supports the knowledge all book lovers have in their secret hearts; that books are alive. I know this book lover does.
And when you get to the scene where the old, dying book lays unresponsive upon the table and the only way to revive it is by reading – I dare you not to weep.
Well done William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg.
