April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce
Title: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Author: William Joyce
Publisher: Atheneum Books for Young Readers
Author Website: www.williamjoyce.com

Rating: 3.5/5 stars
William Joyce's The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a charming picture book about the love a man, Mr. Morris Lessmore, has for his books and stories, and how in turn those books and stories love him in return. Unfortunately, after having seen the animated short that also tells this same story before I read the book, I don't feel that the book does its own story justice, so I'm also including the animated short, so that you can enjoy it just as much as I do.
