The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore - Moonbot StudiosMorris Lessmore, a young bibliophile with a dapper brown suit and an unconquerable cowlick, spends his days on a porch piled high with books and his spare time jotting down his private concerns in a journal.

Books line the walls and flutter through the air like butterflies; when he starts reading, all color returns to his world.
