‘The story that inspired the Academy Award winning short film’ is the sticker that caught my eye on the front cover. There is an interactive app of the book too.
Budding librarian Morris loves writing about his dreams, joys, hopes and sorrows to the exclusion of everything else. Until a storm comes and disturbs his world and scatters even the words in his book. Morris is forced to look around him where he finds an extraordinary building filled with countless books. His life amongst books begins as he learns the enjoyment of sharing them.
This is a beautifully written and illustrated book to be enjoyed by all ages. The message is simple. Books are to be treasured and enduring stories are to be lovingly shared.
