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
