ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Joyce does a lot of stuff but children’s books are his true bailiwick (The Numberlys, The Man in the Moon, Dinosaur Bob, George Shrinks, and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also his Academy Award–Winning Short Film, to name a few). He lives in Shreveport, Louisiana.
ABOUT DINOSAUR BOB: A family brings a most unusual souvenir home after vacation in this classic picture book from the brilliant mind that brought you The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. The Lazardo family has brought back a peculiar souvenir from their trip to Africa...a dinosaur Ah, but Bob is the friendly sort of dinosaur. The kind who enjoys playing the trumpet and tossing around a baseball. Bob is an instant neighborhood hit...until his love of chasing cars with his dog pals stirs up trouble with the police for "disturbing the peace." But it's the Pimlico Pirates' opening game and Bob's love of baseball might just be his get-out-of-jail-free card.
ABOUT A DAY WITH WILBUR ROBINSON: Come meet the Robinsons: Young Wilbur has a robot. Uncle Art has his own flying saucer. Cousin Laszlo has an antigravity device. The butler is an octopus. It's snowing in the east wing. And somebody left the Time Machine on, so . . . Well, perhaps you'd care to read what happens next.
ABOUT BENTLEY & EGG: A singing frog reluctantly babysits a duck egg in this sweetly hilarious picture book. While egg-sitting for his friend Kack Kack the duck, Bently Hopperton the frog is so bored that he cannot resist painting the egg's shell. But when the decorated egg is mistaken for an Easter egg and is egg-napped, Bently discovers that he has in fact, grown terrifically fond of that ole egg. Can he rescue the egg before it's too late? An homage to fatherhood, and the appreciation of swell art.
