It is also big fun to discover every hidden aliens on the pages even the one slowly arriving to the Earth in his tiny flying saucer throughout all the pages. Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example. The small-size aliens were fine and we could count them or just notice them around on different pages. Grandma has just mailed a copy to a young cousin in Western Australia, so hopefully Bob and his aliens (what aliens? Tripping lightly across the planet's golden surface, Bob vacuums space junk out of craters ("Quite often astronauts drop candy wrappers and cans") and enjoys a club sandwich with the Man on Mars and the Man on Saturn.Having completed his daily crossword on the way, one of his first jobs is to clean up the mess he believes astronauts have created. He exchanges his tweedy threads for a form-fitting white jumpsuit with a crescent moon on the chest, then boards a squat rocket for the moon.

Simon Bartram has illustrated four children's books, including PUMPKIN MOON, about which PUBLISHERS WEEKLY said, "Bartram reinvents David Weisner's TUESDAY with grimacing jack-o-lanterns and a hellfire orange gleam. T found the aliens particularly funny, especially when they were hiding in plain sight as Bob went about his business!Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. He knows almost everything there is to know about the moon - but there's something going on behind his back that he hasn't spotted. Each day, a lanky bachelor named Bob leaves his red-brick townhouse and bicycles to a hilltop launch pad. This book was shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Award (2003) and won the Blue Peter Book of the Year (2004) and it is very easy to see why.

He has also written a popular series of illustrated fiction books about the adventures of Bob and his dog Barry. As a picture book, all parents will enjoy reading this story during the daytime or bedtime, the narrative is engaging and the children are fully absorbed in the images. It follows the story of Bob, an ordinary man with the extra-ordinary job of keeping the moon clean and entertaining moon tourists.Another relevant point of inspiration was that I have always suspected that some of my closest friends are not from this planet! Tonight, we bring our space-themed celebration of the Apollo 11 moon landings to an end with a glimpse into a potential future for the moon – Man on the Moon (a day in the life of Bob) by Simon Bartram. Find out what he does on the moon; cleaning and tidying, welcoming visitors, performing tricks for tourists and much more. The factual presentation works really well as does the reality tv-style look into Bob’s day – it’s a very clever device and allows for lots of humour, particularly when combined with the magnificent illustrations. I've managed to get two weeks worth of work out of this one book alone and barely scratched the surface!
