The Numberlys begins “Once upon a time there was no alphabet. Only numbers.” It turns out there weren’t any books, or colors, or jellybeans, or pizzas. Five friends decided there should be something…more, and set about figuring out what that more should be. If you haven’t read a William Joyce book yet, you’re in for a treat. I’ve been a fan of his since Georgie Shrinks, and on through Dinosaur Bob and his Adventures with the Family Lazardo, Shoes, and A Day with Wilbur Robinson. He is also the author of the chapter book series “The Guardians”, stories of famous holiday figures and how they came to be the heroic guardians of us all.
