Simon Bartram is an author and illustrator and, I think, genius. His books are some of the funniest I’ve ever come across and are so appealing to children, older children and adults. Perhaps it’s the quirky British humour that I love so much. We bought ‘Bob’s Best Ever Friend’ a few months ago and the kids have asked repeatedly for it to be read to them. And when that’s not possible they pour over the detailed illustrations and giggle to themselves.
