Morris the Village Voice by Doris Rueger brings timeless lessons and traditional values to children through the fictional story of an advertising column’s struggle to stand proud
In the center of a small village an advertising column that highlights all of the latest local attractions stands tall and proud. The personified column goes by Morris, and throughout Morris the Village Voice, he shares all the things he loves about being an advertising column. Children would race around him and get so excited whenever a new flyer for the circus was posted, while parents could turn to him for the latest in news and events.
But when the village’s advertising committee and mayor want to replace him with an update, glitzy billboard, Morris is heartbroken. Despite his pain, he asks two of his young visitors, Anna and Jason, for help. With the children, prayer and positive thinking on his side, Morris believes he has a great chance of standing in the middle of the village square for years to come.
