It’s Halloween and Bob is going as a scary shark. The sound of Mum’s sewing machine hums through the house. The finished costume looks more like a dead seal. Bob is the oddball; everyone in the neighbourhood can see his costume is all wrong.
The first book in a warm and humorous series about Bob is about daring to be yourself. The language is chiselled-down and playful, and young people will identify with both the action and the cinematic illustrations.
