Synopsis

Bob's Film Fiasco Bob and Barry's Lunar Adventures by Simon Bartram

When Bob becomes an overnight Moon-Tube sensation, Hollywood comes calling. They want to make a movie about him and turn the moon into a Moon Land amusement park. But things quickly get out of hand; the actor playing Bob looks nothing like him, Bob can't even get a job as Bob in the Moon Land astro-park, and his beloved moon is besieged by space rubbish and fast food junk. Can Bob unravel this fiasco and get things sorted in time for a cuppa? Only with a little help from his friends (and aliens) and some trademark Bob ingenuity...

Reviews

Bob and Barry are off on another adventure in Bob's Film Fiasco (Templar, GBP4.99) by Simon Bartram. A film is being made about Bob's life, starring the super-famous Frankie Las Vegas. Bob is ecstatic but things don't go exactly as he'd imagined. Can Frankie Las Vegas ever be Bob? Can the Moon survive its stardom? Can Bob save the day? Read on for another hilarious adventure with our lunar duo. -- Jane Sandell The Scotsman
