You can get your copy of "The Numberlys" signed personally by William "Bill" Joyce later this month.

Toy Fair will hold the book signing between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, May 31 at Toy Fair in Pierremont Mall on Line Ave.

Joyce and Christina Ellis's co-illustrated new picture book will be available for purchase at the store prior to the signing and you will also have the opportunity to meet both Joyce and Ellis.

The Numberlys tells the tale of five heroes stuck in an orderly and dull world of only numbers.  In an effort to break free from the norm, the heroes begin transforming the numbers into letters and find that this change brings many surprises they never knew existed.

The Academy Award® winner and Shreveport native, Joyce, has authored more than fifty children's books, including: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, George Shrinks and Rolie Polie Olie.

Ellis joined the Moonbot team after graduating from Ringling College of Art and Design and The Numberlys is her picture book debut.
