Simon Bartram's fantastic "Bob" books in picture book form were some of our early favourites. royal disaster and some heartless robots in this anthology. Charlotte has always loved the running gag that Bob lives in firm denial of the existence of aliens (despite actually owning an alien dog, and coming into close contact with aliens pretty much every single time he dons a spacesuit). I always hoped that more people would discover the Bob books as they're absolutely fantastic.

We were gifted a second hand copy of the 123 Counting with Bob and had no idea what was going on. Why were they counting plastic moon models? So we did some searching and found this beautifully illustrated book. It's simply gorgeous. The paintings are wonderful and imaginative. The story is simple, but our daughter absolutely loves the aliens. And of course, Bob.

My 3yr son loves this and the sequel Bobs Best Ever Friend. Get them both. Great art and simple cute stories about space and goofy aliens

Son loved it at the library so we bought it for him. It's great for little ones to see if they can see the aliens on each page.

An innocent story about Bob who has a hum-drum job at a tourist attraction-the moon. Has a "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" mix of the ordinary and the fantastic. Children will enjoy pointing out the aliens (to which Bob is oblivious). Plus, there are stickers!

LOVE this book! So fun to read to my boys. They love the pictures of the aliens, and the fact that Bob never seems to see them. I have also read this book several times for story time at my boys' school, and the students overwhelmingly enjoy it.

Bob, has the most exciting job of anyone I know. He gets up every morning, eats his breakfast and gets into his spaceship for his daily trip to the moon. He has to be there early because his job is to clean the moon and make it ready for the daily influx of visitors from Earth. In between cleaning and welcoming the visitors he sells souvenirs, t-shirts and flags. This is a difficult job but Bob has it down pat. There is some mention of aliens, but we all know aliens don't exist, don't we? There seems to be little green aliens in many of the beautiful pictures, but they are not mentioned and left to our imagination, as they are in real life. At the end of the day, Bob cleans up what he can, climbs into his spaceship and zooms back to earth. He eats his dinner and goes to bed to get ready for a new day of excitement on the moon.

My grandson. Oliver is three and he enjoys this book immensely. His mommy and daddy like to read it to him. It is a book for all ages it appears. It tells a simple story in terms all can enjoy. Much of Bob's life is displayed in the beautiful illustrations throughout the book. However, much of the story of Bob's life is left up to our imagination. Pssst--Have you seen any aliens?

Highly Recommended. prisrob 8-19-08

"Bob has a very strange job he cleans the moon! It's really exciting because when he gets up for work you'll never guess how he gets there--not in a car like my Mummy but by rocket!"

When he has cleaned the moon, he has visitors from earth in the afternoon. There were lots of aliens on the moon and some of them sneak back to earth with him in his rocket at the end of the day.

I didn't really like them because they were hiding on lots of different pages in all strange places. Mummy says they won't hide in my room though as they only know Bob and they're really his friends."

Armchair Interviews says: Man in the Moon is exciting!
Every day, Bob flies to the moon to pick up the candy wrappers and cans left by astronauts. Sometimes he even entertains the tourist spaceships. Bob thinks he knows everything about the moon, but does he really? Read and find out!
Bartram's text and boldly colored illustrations combine to form a truly funny, entertaining book that will appeal to readers of all ages. The illustrations in particular invite readers to explore the pictures and story in great detail. A surprise can be found on nearly every page, and readers will delight in knowing a secret that Bob has not yet learned.
