Shreveport native and Academy Award winner William Joyce is coming back to town for a book signing at Toy Fair in Pierremont Mall this Sunday, December 2 from 3 p.m. to 5.

Joyce, who has authored more than 50 children’s books including "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," "George Shrinks" and "Santa Calls," is also the co-founder of Moonbot Studios, a Shreveport-based interactive storytelling studio.

His latest film "Rise of the Guardians" is based on his New York Times-bestselling book series, "The Guardians of Childhood." The film and books explore the mythologies of childhood icons such as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Those attending the book signing can also get pictures taken with Santa and enjoy complimentary coffee and cookies.
