'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' is a book lovers book and a book for all future, would be, soon to be book lovers.
Sometimes Morris would become lost in a book and scarcely emerge for days.
Yes! Those of us who have been know that feeling! My most indulgent mornings are when I pick up my book and read till noon (OK! Yes, sometimes 2 . . . or later). 'I had to finish my book', I tell my husband.
I love how the love of reading is interspersed with the need to write our own stories. I love that Morris grows in his adventure with the books and yet
". . . as he flew, he changed back to the way he'd been that long ago day when they all first met."
That's exactly how this grandma feels when she again reads 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' which I read as a child, or even sings/hears a song the Sisters taught me so long ago. Warm memories of memorable books bring us back in time to who we were when we first encountered them.
'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' is full of wonder and a wonderful book with rather old fashioned illustrations that are . . . wonderful!
