Encino Man

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

Big thanks to the Encino Elementary School for having me as the headliner of their Book Fair. Barnes and Noble Encino hosted a big crowd of book loving kids, parents, and teachers.

I got to draw the school librarian, Mrs. Cummings.

Unfortunately, caricature isn't my strong point. Sorry, Mrs. Cummings.

I signed a lot of books...

I met some adorable Wubbzy fans...

And hung out with some very photogenic families...

- as a thank you gift, I was given a really awesome customized tin of cookies. Yum! Yum!

A Cow Named Wubbzy

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

I've heard of at least 3 dogs that have been named Wubbzy but I was really surprised to find out that there is a calf named Wubbzy. Wubbzy the calf is on a dairy farm in Stockton, California.

I'm a big fan of cows so next time I'm up that way I'm going to make sure to stop by and say "Hi".

Wubb Cookies!

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

Many thanks to Thyjuan Rosario of Inspirations By Thyjuan for sending me a box of awesome Wubbzy cookies!

They look great. They taste delicious. And if you eat them you'll get super powers!
My niece ate one and now she has the ability to talk to donkeys.
Well, I didn't say that they would be good super powers.

Oh, poor Wubbzy cookie!

Hugo the Musical!

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

Well, it's not quite a musical but it is a 'music video' that I put together for my new children's book, Hugo and the Really Really, Really Long String.

Many thanks to Brad Mossman for lending his amazing song making skills!
Brad and I worked together to create all of the songs on Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! I wrote the silly lyrics and Brad turned them into really great, high-energy pop songs!

Ty Ty the Tool Guy

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

A while back we were lucky enough to get the incredibly busy Ty Pennington, of Extreme Home Makeover fame, into the studio to do a voice for Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!
He was a super nice guy and we had a blast doing the episode.
It's premiering Monday, December 14 at 3:00 p.m. ET on Nick Jr.

Brad and Bob on NPR!

Posted on by BOB BOYLE

Wubbzy composer/singer, Brad Mossman and myself created a song in response to a challenge on NPR (National Public Radio) to "Create a song in a weekend".
I wrote some silly lyrics and Brad used his musical genius to turn it into a fun little groovin' song.

Everyone at NPR liked it so much that they decided to do a piece about it's creation!

Brad was interviewed by NPR's Scott Simon for a story that will air tomorrow morning on Weekend Edition Saturday.

If you want to hear it live you can find the time and station here- http://www.npr.org/templates/stations/schedule/index.php?prgId=7

Or it will be posted here after the show airs- http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7
