"Any books that feature a library are sure to capture my attention and when I saw this book displayed at our daughters' elementary school library, I just knew we had to borrow it. The story is entertaining, though quite bizarre, and I think it's best for older children who can appreciate the many layers of the tale. The illustrations are wonderful and we will have to see if we can find the short film.
I love books about books and I love stories that celebrate creativity and imagination. We really enjoyed reading this book together. "
"This is one of my favorite books to read to my children and we read it several times a week. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is even more so. Morris Lessmore losses everything but gains it back and then some in the comforting embrace of books. I love books about books and the people who read them. Morris Lessmore lives an ideal life. To live among books, what fun!
This book helped impress upon my kids the power that reading can have in your life. Our lives are shaped and altered (and made infinitely better) by the books we read. "
