The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

I first read this week’s picture book when my sister, Darlene Blackford, gave me a copy. She said that she loves the book. I do, too! It’s “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” written by William Joyce. I’ve been trying to think of the words that best describe the book. It’s “fanciful” — certainly it’s imaginative — but the book is more than that. There’s a message about the power of reading, too, and the reader is left with a comforting feeling when the book ends.
