The 2012 Oscar winner for animated short film: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore


My son, Josh, who is also a writer and an editor, shared this absolutely delightful video with me: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

It’s 15 minutes long — but oh, those 15 minutes went by so quickly.

    Oh…I LOVED it. I even watched the credits and smiled to see where it was produced. I just KNEW the setting was New Orleans. Thank you for sharing this. Now I’d like to spend the day in a quaint bookstore.

    I see beauty with every southern sunrise as I sip coffee and let the Lord show Himself to me. In the rustling of the leaves as their branches raise in praise to Him. I love that quote. I’m going to memorize it.

    When I visited CO, in Feb. or Jan. at a leadership retreat, can’t remember, I loved the snow capped mountains. Such beauty! 🙂

      I know, I know. As writers, we want words to fly onto the page.
