The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

It is the fourth title in Simon Bartram's young fiction series, the combination of lots of Simon's brilliant and unmistakable drawings coupled with a great story, is the reason why they have been such a huge hit for kids of 6-9. They are fantastic adventures set in space featuring Bob and Barry, well known from the picture books 'Man on the Moon' and 'Bob's Best Ever Friend'. Here Bob is about to get the shock of his life when he runs into...himself! A cloning machine has been invented to duplicate the spaceman in the Galaxy. But what if no one can tell the difference between the clone and the real Bob?

Synopsis

Bob and Barry's Lunar Adventures: Clone Chaos by Simon Bartram

Professor Sickle has created a cloning machine so that every space station in the galaxy can have its own super-efficient Bob. Unfortunately, Bob gets mixed up with the clones – when asked, all of them claim to be the real Bob! Worse, every clone wants to work on the Moon, which is soon overrun with overzealous Bobs! Only a clever series of tests, including a Moon-race, can prove which one is the real
Bob (with a little alien assistance).

Reviews

Batram's confident, witty and stylish prose makes Clone Chaos a great little read. * Armadillo Magazine *

About the Author

Simon Bartram

Simon was our Guest Editor in September 2010. Click here to see all his selections.

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.
