About the Author:

William Joyce lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, with his lovely wife, Elizabeth, and their children, Mary Katherine and Jack. They also have a dachshund named Rose and something else named Rex. Mr. Joyce has produced two animated television shows based on his books: Rolie Polie Olie and George Shrinks. He also produced and designed the animated feature film Robots. Every once in a while he does a cover for The New Yorker. His alarmingly optimistic picture books include Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo, Santa Calls, The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs, and Bently & Egg.He is currently futzing around on several books and stories that embrace the alleged healing power of heroically scaled silliness.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Each family is odd is in its own way, but none is as eccentric as young Wilbur Robinson's. Joyce expands on his 1990 title just in time for the story's film adaptation, Meet the Robinsons, next year. The basic story is the same: Wilbur's best friend describes a visit to the Robinson house, which begins when a giant octopus opens the door. New spreads include images of an uncle who throws snowballs and dinosaurs lounge poolside (the time machine was left on). The endpapers and cover have also been redesigned. As in the original, the real fun is in the tension between the deadpan words and the fantastical pictures: "It's kind of dull around here today," says Wilbur as a giant locomotive steams through the hall and an uncle shoots himself from a cannon. Save this for small groups, which will most appreciate the wondrous visual details. Gillian Engberg
