From the inside book jacket:
Known for more than 30 years as America's premier satirist of popular music and culture, "Weird Al" Yankovic has had almost as many careers as Billy can dream of. Advised by his father to do whatever made him happy, he has accordingly been a comedian, singer/songwriter, music producer, actor, director, and writer - often all at the same time. Mr. Yankovic has won 3 Grammy Awards and has sold more comedy recordings than anyone else in history. This is his first children's book.

For more information about "Weird Al" Yankovic, check out the DIS Unplugged interview with him prior to his performance last year at the Hard Rock at Universal Orlando.

About the Power of 10:

We are a group of Disney fans who want to help share our passion for Disney with those who need it most: children with life threatening illnesses and their families. When these children ask to visit Walt Disney World through organizations like the Make-A-Wish foundation, many times those organizations reach out to Give Kids The World to make that wish a reality. Our goal is simple. We’re looking to raise $1M to help this worthy organization in their mission to turn no child away. For more information about the Power of 10, please see:

I'm currently highest bidder, but hopefully, at least for the charity's sake, I'm outbid.
