This outstanding picture book packs a sophisticated, meaningful story into a relatively small number of words, and the illustrations are colorful and imaginative. I actually teared up a little at the end! This is one to recommend to people young and old!

This short (13 minutes) animated short has won a host of awards, including the 2012 "Best Animated Short" Academy Award, & deservedly so. Any book lover, librarian, or whimsical person will become an instant fan. Put me down!

The setting of "The Fantastic Flying Books..." is a place that represents what books do all the time, they draw you into their fantastical world's and adventures, and help you to fly...at least figuratively.
