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?

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).
