Review #1419 The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I (of course) loved the premise of this story. The idea of books being alive is fantastic and magical. I loved the illustrations and thought they captured this concept wonderfully. It was a simple and sweet story, but at the same time, it wasn't something I felt like reading over and over. It had sweet illustrations and made me a little sad at the end when things were coming to a close. But book gently reminded readers there was hope because there would always be stories for other people to enjoy. I think book lovers will especially find this book endearing and I'd probably recommend.
