by William Joyce
This title should be required reading for every library employee, everywhere. It encompasses the myriad feelings we experience on a daily basis when surrounded by stories. I love the idea that books get mixed up because they are tired of their own stories and want to be around a different type. The metaphor for life is exceptionally well done. The story was previously done as a short film that won an Academy Award in 2012. The story behind the book is as extraordinary as the one upon the pages.
