You’ll want to pick this one for reality-challenged fourth graders and anyone who nose they’re weird. It’s snot your typical storybook app.
Billy’s Booger is the illustrated memoir of children’s book author William Joyce, chronicling the true story of the making of his very first book. And that book is included in this app – narrated and sound effect-ed by Joyce himself.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Billy loves to draw. He draws on books and on his homework and even on his math tests. The librarian has an idea that just might help Billy better direct his illustrative energies: a book-making contest!
Billy gets right to work, reading everything he can about meteors, mythology, space travel, and…mucus? Yep, his book is going to be about the world’s smartest booger, who stays tucked away until needed—say, to solve multiplication problems, or answer questions from the President. Billy’s sure his story is a winner. But being a winner doesn’t mean you always win. Sometimes it means being in trouble with the principal.
Richly drawn spreads by William Joyce and animated by Moonbot Studios

Super boogers (they’re nothing to sneeze at)
PRAISE FOR BILLY’S BOOGER (the hard copy book, available at moonbotbooks.com):
“They say only the rarest kind of best is good enough for our kids. Well this puppy is as rare as it gets and, yes. It’s one of the best.” - School Library Journal
“This spirited memoir shows and tells what it feels like to struggle and to prevail.” – Booklist
“Zestful collage overlappings and retro-style illustration that slyly evokes old-school primers” –Kirkus
“Joyce’s recreation of an episode from his own childhood bursts with energy and warmth. “ - Publishers Weekly
Great gross fun
I love the animations and hearing William Joyce read the book! I grew up on Rolie Polie Olie (which he also made) and this is just as funny.
So wonderful! Love every app from this team!
Bought the first app you guys put out shortly after reading a story about it that our librarian friend recommended. We've been reading, playing, and exploring them all with our son, practically since birth. He now loves making his own books (not just the stories, the whole book, from cover to artwork and all, including his most recent which featured some pop-up characters and 3D scenery) so showing him this app I knew it would be a huge hit, and it was!! Keep making more apps like these, because I love how much the whole family enjoys them! It's amazing how much you've been able to inspire kids to keep being creative and inventive. My son now wants to learn how he can make his books into an amazing app like this, so looks like I've got some homework to do, lol! Anyway, I just cannot say enough how much we love all their apps, but especially this one! Amazing storytelling, great pacing, and the variety in the presentation of it, all simply wonderful!
Thank you Mr. Joyce for being a quirky kid with a love for books and endless doodling. This brought me right back to those elementary years. You have such an animated voice, enjoyed hearing you reading to my kiddos, I think I liked it more than they did. It was so funny as I can recall this type of behavior in 4th grade. Keep em coming moonbot!
