Books on Film: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Thanks to Michelle of See Michelle Read, I finally watched The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, an animated short up for an Oscar today. Let me tell you, if you are a bibliophile, it will be hard not to love this little gem. I may have teared up a bit at the end.

The short is up on full on youtube, although I don’t know for how long. If you have 15 minutes to sit down and watch it, I highly recommend you do.

  1. I loved this short!! I watched the whole thing… how could I not?
    I know nothing of the other shorts that are also nominated, but I hope this one wins.
    Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

  2. I’m so glad you posted this! I honestly hadn’t heard of it before yesterday, but after watching now I am so happy that it won the Oscar. It was charming and lovely, and I even nearly teared up at the end. Perfect for any bibliophile!
