They're what Bob does.

As the author and/or illustrator of over 50 books, you might be aware of a couple -- but have you checked them all out? From Hello, Robots (Viking) to The Red Lemon (Random House), from I'm A Truck (Little Golden Books) to Pets Go Pop (Little, Brown), you're sure to find the perfect kid (and adult) pleasing title. These award-winning books range from the goofy and silly to the thought-provoking and mysterious. In word and picture, Bob entertains but also makes young readers wonder, question and think.

Reading. It's crucial to a child's mental, aesthetic and educational development, so take a look at both Bob's in-print and out-of-print books -- and consider bringing one home to that special kid in your life.
