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

The ever-dependable Moonbots subjected 
Joyce's  jet pack to rigorous safety testing.
Look to the skies above the National Mall starting at around 1:30 PM on Saturday. It's not a bird, or a plane, it's author William Joyce! See him on a terrestrial break from his sublunary journey at the 2011 National Book Festival in Washington, DC this weekend. Have a copy of The Man In The Moon signed and enjoy a lovely autumn afternoon at this event sponsored by the Library of Congress. A map of the pavilion layout can be downloaded here.

The Man In The Moon Book Launch

 Critics are delighted with  The Man In The Moon, the first picture book in William Joyce's epic Guardians of Childhood series. 
 "The arrival of The Man in the Moon is an occasion for handsprings, unbridled kazoo playing and infectious hilarity."-The Jade Sphinx
 "Joyce creates an old-fashioned fairy tale atmosphere in which good and evil coexist, drawing readers into a dreamlike scenario that resonates deeply in the psyche. And he does it in a style that feels fresh and compellingly modern"-Nola.com
The book is Amazon's spotlight pick for best picture book of September.
