    When Bob, the Man on the Moon, spots a strange seed bouncing along the surface of the Moon, little does he know that it will grow overnight into the first ever Moontree! Earth tourists (especially the lumberjacks) come to try to get a piece of Moontree, but Bob keeps them at bay (oblivious to the alien assistance he's getting). Only when things start to get really shocking (or should we say shaking?) do we discover the secret of the Moontree - it's seeds are actually eggs, each one containing a baby alien!

    When a big, hairy asteroid clips Bob's beloved Moon, it takes him and his dog, Barry, ages to clear up the itchy dust. Next morning Bob finds the itching is worse, and he has a strange hunger for - meat! Under a microscope all becomes clear - the dust was actually thousands of WEREFLEAS, travelling across the galaxy, turning planets and asteroids into hairy, scary, werewolf-infested places with their cursed bite! Can Bob save the Moon from the same fate, especially if he's feeling hair-raisingly unusual himself? Luckily he has Barry to help him canine-to-canine!

    Dry, funny (and occasionally downright odd), this off-the-wall collection of illustrated poems is now available in softback. This collection firmly establishes Simon Bartram as one the most unique and exciting new talents in children's books. Comparisons have been made to Colin McNaughton, Ronald Dahl and John Hegley, but Simon's voice and humour are entirely his own - a new poet for a new generation.

    When Bob becomes an overnight Moon-Tube sensation, Hollywood comes calling. They want to make a movie about him and turn the moon into a Moon Land amusement park. But things quickly get out of hand; the actor playing Bob looks nothing like him, Bob can't even get a job as Bob in the Moon Land astro-park, and his beloved moon is besieged by space rubbish and fast food junk. Can Bob unravel this fiasco and get things sorted in time for a cuppa? Only with a little help from his friends (and aliens) and some trademark Bob ingenuity...
