From the team who brought you The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore comes an alphabet tale extraordinaire!

Once upon a time there was no alphabet, only numbers...

Life was...fine. Orderly. Dull as gray paint. Very...numberly. But our five jaunty heroes weren’t willing to accept that this was all there could be. They knew there had to be more.

So they broke out hard hats and welders, hammers and glue guns, and they started knocking some numbers together. Removing a piece here. Adding a piece there. At first, it was awful. But the five kept at it, and soon it was...artful! One letter after another emerged, until there were twenty-six. Twenty-six letters—and they were beautiful. All colorful, shiny, and new. Exactly what our heroes didn’t even know they were missing.

And when the letters entered the world, something truly wondrous began to happen...Pizza! Jelly beans! Color! Books!

Based on the award-winning app, this is William Joyce and Moonbot’s Metropolis-inspired homage to everyone who knows there is more to life than shades of black and gray.


Sketches from The Numberlys

For the Numberlys app, Christina Ellis and Petter Lundh explored different simple and flat environments for the city. This composition was also used as inspiration for a spread in the book.

For the animated short, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 were each created as black-and-white, computer-generated models that Moonbot animators could use in expressive movement.

For the picture book, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 were drawn and painted in Photoshop with more texture and slight sepia tones.

In this expression sheet created for the Numberlys animated short film, artist Joe Bluhm illustrates how the Numberlys' large eyes and mouth can be used to create many emotions.
