They would also only drop off a case of books and leave us to run it – it was so lovely to have you on hand to chat to the children and recommend them books, as well as the small (but appreciated!

The illustration work is the real highlight of the book, especially the larger, zoomed-in spreads and the mix of traditional looks with the modern and unusual – who isn’t going to be impressed by an alien in glasses and a sweater vest?

Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example.

Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc.As the story progresses, the humorous narrative tells the reader that of course there are no aliens and that Bob is a Moon expert, but the illustrations clearly show aliens on each page - stealing his cake, hiding in a crater, in the bath tub. is the 15th anniversary of the creation of Bob, Man on the Moon, celebrate with this anniversary edition.

His day ends with final checks, turning on of the moon’s nightlight and a rush-hour rocket ride home!
