About this deal

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Bob is a wonderful character and the story itself is simplistic enough to engage any child from three years upwards. Charlotte has always loved the running gag that Bob lives in firm denial of the existence of aliens (despite actually owning an alien dog, and coming into close contact with aliens pretty much every single time he dons a spacesuit).

Absolutely my favourite book to read to children, one of their favourites to listen to (though Daddy insisting on reading it never goes down well.There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors. T found the aliens particularly funny, especially when they were hiding in plain sight as Bob went about his business!

His day ends with final checks, turning on of the moon’s nightlight and a rush-hour rocket ride home! Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned.

Squeezing in one more, this time a space-going hero that we have loved right from the very start of this blog. Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. Since then, it's been a hilarious staple of night time reading, day time reading, Daddy reading to himself, and just general conversation between our children and ourselves.

No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling.The text and the pictures are well connected supporting each other, however they have their own life too: the story can be read without looking at any of the pictures, and as the book is richly illustrated it is very easy to make up your own storyline without reading. It was such a pleasure to meet you both, and I really appreciated how smoothly and professionally you ran everything. The factual presentation works really well as does the reality tv-style look into Bob’s day – it’s a very clever device and allows for lots of humour, particularly when combined with the magnificent illustrations.

Templar) ‘Every morning Bob rises at six o’clock… has a cup of tea and two eggs for breakfast before leaving for the rocket launch pad. I can imagine this story would be wonderful to teach in a Primary setting as there are many directions you could take with the concept of the 'man on the moon' - Space topics, looking at difference and developing visual literacy, among them. As a picture book, all parents will enjoy reading this story during the daytime or bedtime, the narrative is engaging and the children are fully absorbed in the images. Simon Bartram has illustrated four children's books, including PUMPKIN MOON, about which PUBLISHERS WEEKLY said, "Bartram reinvents David Weisner's TUESDAY with grimacing jack-o-lanterns and a hellfire orange gleam. He never notices the short green guys who watch from a distance, steal a cupcake from his picnic lunch and crowd into a wordless spread to mug for readers.Bob’s daily routine is described in a matter of fact tone, and his disbelief in aliens is frequently referred to.
