On Saturday, July 12, at 11 a.m., stores nationwide will celebrate reading via a free event for children ages 3 to 7 featuring William Joyce's new picture book, The Numberlys. Based on the award-winning app, this is author William Joyce's homage to everyone who knows there is more to life than shades of black and gray.
The Numberlys is the creative story about friends with dull lives because there are only boring numbers. So, they break out hard hats and welders, hammers and glue guns, and start creating numbers. One letter after another emerges until there are 26, and when the letters enter the world, something truly wondrous begins to happen like Pizza! Jelly beans! Color! Books! The book highlights the process of making art and the thrill of discovering new things through one's imagination.
From July 15 to August 25, while supplies last, customers who want to bring the fun home can buy The Numberlys for only $8.99 (regularly priced at $17.99) with the purchase of any children's book.
