The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce

Based on an Oscar-winning short film, this beautiful book about books is one of our favorites — about life, the passage of time, and the magic of reading. When Morris Lessmore’s life is turned upside down in a Wizard of Oz-like storm, he comes upon a spectacular abandoned library — and spends the next few decades caring for the (flying) books inside, sharing them with others, and writing his own story. Morris’s beloved books care for him as he ages, and in a heart-tugging ending, his story lives on.
