The fantastic flying books….

Entering in she asked “Oh, did you make those after reading The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore?” I half calked my head confused as to what she was talking about. I explained that I decided to fold books after admiring an Anthropologie in-store display, and then I asked to hear more about this wonderful book I knew nothing about. She proceeded to describe the most beautiful children’s book ever, and a week later there was a gift on my porch from her- the book itself.

The first time I read this book I burst into tears. Not sad tears, but because it was so beautiful and poignant. My life has felt a little like his, especially this year.

I continue to find great comfort and inspiration in these pages, and I do this frequently.

This page set right here is so beyond brilliant: both in illustration and words.

I don’t want to spoil the story for you so I am going to leave the remainder of the illustrations and plot for you to discover. Regardless of whether or not you have children I feel strongly that this book should be read by just about everyone. If you can’t buy it, go to the library and read it. ¬†Additionally I recommend that you fold a book and dangle it from your ceiling as a reminder of your worth, dreams, joys and sorrows. You matter and so does your story. Mr William Joyce- I am so glad you shared your time and talent with the world- your book raises the bar in every way possible.
