A hurricane blows away Mr. Lessmore's books, even scattering away the words from the book he was writing, the book of his own life. He ends up in a different world, a la The Wizard of Oz, a world where books can fly and talk and open themselves. He devotes the rest of his life to taking care of these books.
A resounding hymn in praise of books and reading, this book was first an Oscar-winning animated short, then an app, and now, finally, it's a book!
