BATMAN & BILL, first documentary inspired by children’s nonfiction, is a hit!

August 4th, 2017

Marc Tyler Nobleman preaches the message of passion and perseverance while meeting with students at schools. In fact, he lives that message each day in his writing career! Just wait until the thousands of school children he’s visited over the years see the new documentary Batman & Bill inspired by Nobleman’s book, Bill The Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman.

This is the first-ever film based on a nonfiction picture book. It was made because one of Nobleman’s research discoveries led to another first…but that’s a big twist in the movie, so it can’t be revealed here! What can be said: the story is a vivid reminder of the power of children’s literature—and any one person—to bring about a significant real-world change. More at Nobleman’s blog Noblemania!
