Simon Bartram’s Man in the Moon was one of the most memorable, witty, and intriguing picture books of recent times and now at last, Bob, the man in the moon is back but looking for a best ever best friend to help him with his intergalactic missions. But where could he find one and what would it be? A wonderful astronomical adventure ensues.

Synopsis

Bob's Best Friend by Simon Bartram

Bob is feeling glum; his friends Billy and Sam are off mending a puncture in Saturn’s ring and there are no space tourists to entertain. Bob needs a best friend to help with intergalactic missions and jigsaw puzzles. Going about his day, oblivious to the alien goings on, Bob doesn’t notice an extra-terrestrial dog who follows him around. The mono browed canine with eyes on stalks turns out to be this spaceman’s best friend!

Simon Bartram

Simon Bartram is one of the most talented picture book illustrators and authors working today. He realised very early on that he wanted to be an illustrator as he always loved drawing and was an avid consumer of comics. His  first illustration was for Roy of the Rovers when he was eleven. He graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic with a  first class degree in illustration in 1990, and his art style is heavily in uenced by artists such as Peter Blake, Stanley Spencer and Reg Cartwright. Simon has been shortlisted for several major illustration awards including The Mother Goose in 1999 and the Kate Greenaway Award twice.

This is what the Art Director at Templar, his publisher, has said about him:

'Simon is wonderfully bonkers, and as British as a mini pork pie. he is a unique voice in children's publishing and his books have a refreshingly 'real' heart and natural character. He's one of the best British illustrators in the universe!'

Simon is a mad keen football fan and supporter of Sunderland. He lives in
Newcastle with his wife Nicola and their son. Simon’s other books for Templar include: Pumpkin Moon, A Winter’s Tale, Dougal’s Deep-Sea Diary, The Alien Spotters Guide and Watch Out for Sprouts.
