That might be a little bit of English major hyperbole, but everyone ought to check out the Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. It’s about as awesome as some of the best sequences from Pixar’s UP! and has just as few words. It’s a story told in a beautiful way, and all the more beautiful because it’s about how awesome books are.
The whole film isn’t on Vimeo anymore, but you can watch the trailer and go download for free on iTunes.
