Barnes and Noble will be hosting a book signing for William Joyce’s latest picture book, The Numberlys on Saturday, August 16. Joyce co-illustrated the book with Christina Ellis, an artist at Moonbot Studios. From 3-5 PM, attendees can meet Joyce and Ellis and get their books signed.
Academy Award®-winning filmmaker, bestselling author and animation pioneer, Joyce cofounded Moonbot Studios in Shreveport, La in 2009 to create films, apps, books, games and other transmedia entertainment. Joyce has written or illustrated over 25 books; including kid favorites George Shrinks, Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo, A Day With Wilbur Robinson, The Leafmen and the Brave Good Bugs, Rolie Polie Olie and his 13 book series, the Guardians of Childhood.
Christina Ellis is an illustrator, telling fantastic stories through her characters and their worlds. Christina joined the legion of Moonbots after studying illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design. Her co-illustration of The Numberlys is her publishing debut. As the art lead on the accompanying augmented reality app, IMAG·N·O·TRON: Numberlys Edition, she helped to craft a whole new fun way to read the book with your iOS, Android or Kindle Fire devices.
