Winter Illustration Festival 2012 with Simon Bartram

We had a wonderful cosy Winter Festival this year with Simon Bartram's Bob, Man on the Moon celebrating his 10th birthday. Simon read from his newest book Bob and the Moontree Mystery. George Tarlton joined us again to fill the gallery with the lovely sounds of his guitar. Rocket cake was shared, alien balloons were blown up and Simon signed a mountain of Bob books (get your signed copies quick!)

'Side by side on the sand sit two eggs. When the brothers hatch, with a crack and a rip, out come a bird... and a crocodile! But a bird and a crocodile can't be brothers - can they?'
