Come play with William Joyce! Go on a treasure hunt. Decorate Easter eggs. Design Halloween costumes. Invent the un-invented. This scrapbook is your invitation to come play with the world’s number-one advocate of global silliness. This is not a coffee-table tribute—if you tried to put it on a table, it would leap off, scratch its binding, and do the hokey-pokey. It’s an opportunity for kids and kids-at-heart to find out what being an artist and writer is all about and take a sneak peek at the dreams and doodles of one of the industry’s leading talents. Did you know that at Christmas, William Joyce decorates his living room with not one Christmas tree, but a dozen? That his very first picture book at the age of nine landed him in the principal’s office for the afternoon?
Packed with a year’s worth of holiday photographs, rib-tickling anecdotes, early sketches, snippets of future projects, and more, The World of William Joyce Scrapbook is your chance to take a leisurely ramble through an elegantly mischievous landscape, where adventure is de rigueur, and everything turns out A-OK.

William Joyce is the author and illustrator of many best-selling and award-winning picture books, including Rolie Polie Olie, Snowie Rolie, Dinosaur Bob, Santa Calls, and George Shrinks. He is also the creator of the Emmy Award-winning series Rolie Polie Olie on the Disney Channel. William Joyce lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, with his lovely wife, Elizabeth, and their children, Jack and Mary Katherine. They also have a dachshund named Rose.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2 Up?This eclectic autobiography is aptly dubbed a scrapbook. Joyce offers tidbits of information about his childhood, his working life, and his family. He also provides brief summaries of and background information about his picture books, including glimpses of four works in progress. His holiday celebrations seem as surreal as many of the characters and settings he has created. The photo montages that accompany the hand-lettered text include family snapshots, sketches, childhood drawings, magazine covers, and views of Joyce's home. With so many images per page, the work will provide plenty to interest the artist's many fans, who definitely will want to peruse the book. Those unfamiliar with his picture books should probably read a few first to avoid becoming more confused than amused.?Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
