Flying Books

Well, I've got my nose to the grindstone in the midst of book-writing, proofreading, and tutoring, so today this video is going to do the talking for me :) 

This animated movie, produced by Moonbot Studios, won the Academy Award for Best Short Film. It's entitled The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Moonbot's website describes it as "a love letter to books...about the curative power of story." 

Interesting, because it's wordless. 


What do you think? How did you react to this film?
