Not too long ago I watched a beautiful little animated short film entitled The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. There is no dialogue and yet it (excuse the phrase) spoke to me on a very personal level. Imagine my delight when I discovered that it was created by the same man that create...

I read this story over and over again and the more I read it, the richer it became. It’s about words, it’s about books, it’s about stories and order and life and ….I could go on but I think everyone who reads it will find their own meaning. Morris loved stories and books, writing his own joys and ...

written by William Joyce, illustrated by William Joyce and Joe Bluhm (I'm going to meet them sometime in March) I first encountered this story when the animated short based on the book was nominated for (and later won) an academy award. The short is very good, and I recommend you watch it. In fact...

I have long been a fan of William Joyce - his beautiful illustrations, his thoughtful and thought-provoking children's books The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs - forget the beyond atrocious film version, Bently and Egg, George Shrinks and so many more. I'm not sure what took me so long to get to t...

I usually try to separate my children’s book reviews on Amazon and my book feed on goodreads. This book is the exception. Everyone—no matter the age or genre interest—should read this book.Sometimes we are fortunate to have a story medium transcend the barrier between what is called a children’s sto...
