The book that inspired the Academy Award–winning 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.

Buy the hardcover….
Meant to by the app, but bought this by mistake. The story is wonderful, but do you and your child a favor and buy the physical book. Reason is the iBook interface on the iPad is too small for this book: This is a book meant be viewed two pages at a time, in large panorama. If you view two pages at once on the iPad, the book is so small it loses its wonder.
So my daughter just read this and she loved it I totally recomend this book
My niece (2) and my son (10) love to read this over and over again. It is a beautiful story and it keeps the kids entertained.
