This fantastic follow-up to the Blue Peter Award-winning Man on the Moon features Simon Bartram’s inimitable artwork in a new adventure for our much-loved hero, Bob.

Bob needs a best friend to help with intergalactic missions and jigsaw puzzles. Going about his day, oblivious to the alien goings on, Bob doesn’t notice an extra-terrestrial dog who follows him around. The mono browed canine with eyes on stalks turns out to be this spaceman’s best friend!

The Princess' Blankets

 
The Princess' Blankets – first edition slipcased hardback signed by Poet Laureate Carol-Ann Duffy and illustrator Catherine Hyde
 

A powerful new fairy tale of a princess who cannot get warm, no matter what is done for her. A stranger with cold eyes brings her the earth's blanket, the forest's blanket, the ocean's blanket and more, but nothing can warm the cold princess until one day a musician wanders into the land, and her heart melts with warmth and love.

This brooding story from the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, is illustrated by a series of specially-commissioned dramatic paintings by artist Catherine Hyde. Combined with stunning design and print finishes, this is an extraordinary book, destined to become a classic.

Winner of the Key Stage 2 Fiction Award in the 2009 English 4-11 Best Children's Illustrated Book Awards
