Simon Bartram: Bob, Man On The Moon 10th Birthday Celebrations

Simon Bartram's Bob, Man on the Moon was first published in 1992 and the Bob books have become a picture book phenomenon reaching sales of 250,000 and winning Simon The Blue Peter Book Award.
To celebrate Bob's 10th Birthday, Templar have launched Simon's new picture book, Bob and the Moontree Mystery.
"Bob is truly stumped by the arrival of a mysterious Moontree growing out of crater 483. Moontree questions ping around his head - where did it come from? How did it get here? And why does Bob feel like it's his job to protect the tree and it's golden podberries?"

The Pirates Next Door

Jonny Duddle, the creator of best-selling picture book The Pirate Cruncher, has a new pirate adventure published in October by Templar. The Pirates Next Door stars the Jolley-Rogers, the pirate family who move to Dull-on-Sea and cause no end of rumours amongst the locals. But for their next door neighbour Matilda, life suddenly gets more interesting.

The first edition hardcover has a fold-out poster of the Jolly-Rogers and there's a stunning double gatefold inside.

Pinocchio in pop-ups

Leading children's book illustrator, Richard Johnson, has recently produced a magnificent pop up book based on the classic tale of Pinocchio, for Templar publishing. It really is a stunning piece of work, and it sure to be a big hit. His beautifully rendered imagery jumps out of the pages, bringing the story to life in an exciting fresh way. It is an exciting addition to the Templar catalogue, which already includes Richard's successful 'Alice in Wonderland' pop up book. Well done Richard!
