Synopsis

Big Bob, Little Bob by James Howe

It's not easy to become friends with someone who is nothing like you - but surprising things can happen when you give it a try. A comforting story of friendship for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes, this is the story of two boys, as different as different can be. Big Bob likes trucks and throwing balls and being loud. Little Bob likes dolls and jingling bracelets and being quiet. No matter what they do, they do not do it the same. But when they become new neighbours, they might just find a way to be friends...With humour and tenderness, James Howe and Laura Ellen Anderson beautifully depict the struggles and joys that come when friendships are forged between different kinds of people.

Reviews

Any story that challenges gender stereotyping is worth a look in my book. This one is delivered with a gentle humour that is accentuated by Andersen's comical scenes of the children at play. Definitely a book to share with those around the same age as the characters herein
