About the Book

Wow! What a time Willie has when Uncle Bill sits for him. When Willie’s mother is gone, exciting things just seem to happen. In three separate adventures, the duo gets to try out a new look, cook up something fun, and rock out.


“As many children know, uncles are way more fun than parents, and Willie’s Uncle Bill is no exception. . . . The three stories capture the sense of adventure, humor, and warmth an uncle (or aunt) can bring, and the gouache and pen-and-ink pictures reflect that same coziness.”
The Horn Book

“Bright patterns adorn Willie and Uncle Bill but are also smattered across rugs, sofas and wallpapers, adding to the joy. Emerging readers will appreciate the feel of a chapter book, but this dynamic duo will surely be adored (and envied) by all ages.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Kids will like these satisfying clandestine adventures and look forward to Uncle Bill’s next visit.”
