Product Description

Not many people can claim "talking vegetables" as the fruit of their life's labor, but Phil Vischer can! Starting with no money, no connections, and no clue what he was getting himself into, he doggedly pursued his dream to use his love of technology and slightly warped sense of humor to change the world for Christ. But instead of becoming the next Walt Disney, Phil Vischer found himself in bankruptcy court, watching everything fall apart. Follow his remarkable journey from VeggieTales creator to bankrupt dreamer as he shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph. It may change everything you believe about dreaming big, falling hard and getting back up again.

Publisher's Description

Larry. Bob. Archibald. These Veggie Tales stars are the most famous vegetables you'll ever eat. Oops, meet. Their antics are known around the world. But so much of the Veggie Tale story hasn't been told. In Me, Myself, and Bob, Phil Vischer, founder of Big Idea and creator of Veggie Tales, gives a behind-the-scenes look at his not-so-funny journey with the loveable veggies. From famed creator to bankrupt dreamer, Vischer shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph as God inspired him with one big idea after another.

With a flair for electronics, a wild imagination salted heavily with wit, and a talent for animation, a young Iowan boy broke out of the mold and ended up creating those very popular VeggieTales. How does your average 1960’s Christian boy with divorced parents become so famous? As told by that boy himself, Phil Vischer, Me, Myself & Bob is by turns hilarious, disquieting, heart-breaking, intriguing, and comforting. And then he faces bankruptcy. It isn’t only humor and talent that get him through it all. Along the way Vischer shares the trust and obey lessons he learned from his Lord. Vignettes clustered through this story provide appeal, including many of our now-famous animators and performers.
Me, Myself & Bob is an interesting—yet somewhat improbable even while remaining believable—autobiography. The average, middle-class Christian will identify with the pitfalls, problems, mess-ups, and godly rescues that appear on these pages. Those readers who have found themselves not quite in step with the common drummer will be happy to meet another out-of-stepper. Everyone will enjoy the humor. The account of bankruptcy proceedings capably catches the frailty of average people, and their relief as they find they can trust God. Vischer describes himself as a Bible college dropout looking for his father and longing to make an impact. In his closing chapters, Vischer shares this insight, “Let it go. Give it up. Let it die. Let Christ shred your dragon skin and lead you into a whole new life” (p. 251). Read this book for fun, read it to learn more about living the daily Christian life, but most of all read it to see how one man is getting rid of his dragon skin. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book
