Simon Bartram, creator of the award-winning best-selling Bob, Man on the Moon has a brand new picture book out - RUFUS, published by Templar. Rufus is a very keen and very green but not a very mean monster who really wants to find a real deal peopley person of his very own to scare!
A bit of good library news for a change. Gateshead Library has just re-opened after a £2.5 million redevelopment. It's brand new children's library is now home to a few of Simon Bartram's illustrations from his book, Bob's Best Ever Friend in supersize on the walls. Simon, who lives locally to this important resource for the community, was on hand to do some Bob events for the opening weekend.
