Bob, the Man on the Moon, has already had several prize-winning adventures. Now he and his extra special dog Barry are back in a new format for more surprises about a very special place. Bob and Barry have to use all their skill to find out what has happened to the moon after the magician The Stupendous Alacazamo causes it to disappear from the sky. An attractive and easy-to-form chapter book with a real sense of action.

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.
