The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (2011)

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore won over a dozen film festivals and the 2012 Academy Award for best animated short. Not only is this beautiful movie all about books, but it has itself been turned into a picture book by legendary children’s book writer William Joyce.

Room on the Broom is a magical tale about friendship and family from Magic Light Pictures, the producers of the hugely successful The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child.
