Last weekend William Joyce jetted over to Austin, TX to attend Texas Book Fest. That event coincided with the Austin Film Fest, where "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" was named  Best Animated Short.

The Man In The Moon is a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice. From the New York Times Bookshelf
"With the aura of an established classic, the first volume in Joyce’s long-­anticipated series, “The Guardians of Childhood,” is worth the wait. And what a brilliant concept!...With lots of detail in its gold-flecked blues, the lavish illustration will set 6-year-old minds ticking..."

When engaging in transport via jet pack, always wear a helmet!
Tomie DePaola & William Joyce
 William Joyce landed safely in DC this weekend just in time to meet readers, sign books, and offer a presentation at the National Book Festival. He even found time to participate in an interview with Fox News:


Next book tour stop: Texas Book Festival, in Austin, TX on Saturday October 22nd.

Another review of The Man In The Moon is out:
Joyce does not write for idealized carefree children living what adults view as an idyllic existence.  Joyce knows that even happy children have fears and concerns about their world.  Joyce creates fantasy worlds where scary or sad things happen, but children (or their animal counterparts) are strong enough to find ways to cope. -The Open Book
