About the Author

William Joyce paints and writes most of the time. He 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'. At the start of his painting career, he found that gallery owners weren't interested in the images that made him happy - suburbab backyards filled with floating family members, flying saucers and baseball-playing dinosaurs. 'Then I backed into the world of children's picture books. I'd found paradise!' William Joyce lives with his wife and two children in Louisiana, USA.
