A must-have for all fans of Bob, the very much loved man in the moon, who is back for a brilliantly entertaining new adventure. Bob knows every inch of the moon which he looks after so carefully. Imagine his surprise when suddenly a beautiful new tree is growing right out of one of the craters! Bob does everything he can to keep the moon tree and its wonderful fruit safe from the moon visitors before he is swept away on a whirlwind adventure of his own. Bob gets bolder and more entertaining in every new story.
When Bob, the Man on the Moon, spots a strange seed bouncing along the surface of the Moon, little does he know that it will grow overnight into the first ever Moontree! Earth tourists (especially the lumberjacks) come to try to get a piece of Moontree, but Bob keeps them at bay (oblivious to the alien assistance he's getting). Only when things start to get really shocking (or should we say shaking?) do we discover the secret of the Moontree - it's seeds are actually eggs, each one containing a baby alien!
