5.0 out of 5 stars Where in the World is Bob 10 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover
This is a beautifully illustrated A3 picture book of Bob - the now famous ginger cat - (and his owner James of course) on their journey around the world and provides hours of fun trying to find them (and their many accessories, plus a special feline friend of Bob) hidden in each country. Will appeal to young and old alike and I can see this filling many a stocking at Xmas and being another huge bestseller. Great fun!

What can I say a 'no brainer'. I have purchased this for my friends Daughter as a Christmas present, I know she will adore it. It's colourful, beautifully illustrated - and educational at the same time as being fun! I am going to sit down now and have flick through, and of course, look for Bob! What a great idea, and timed perfectly for that certain time of the year! Another hit from Mr Bowen and of course, Bob!!!

This blows 'Where's Waldo' (or 'Where's Wally' depending on which part of the world you're in), out of the water. Great fun for all ages and a terrific Christmas gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Lovely Bob Book 16 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the best books you could ever give a child for a present. The illustrations are wonderful. All children will have great fun finding Bob and all the other items he's taken with him to the various countries of the world and they will also learn a lot about these places whilst they are searching. But don't let them hog it too much - this book is hugely enjoyable for ALL ages, adults will love it too!! James and Bob are a wonderful team, they can do no wrong - buy it and you'll see what I mean!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHO ARE MORE ENTERTAINED .....KIDS OR ADULTS? 27 Oct 2013
By DOPPLEGANGER TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a great concept, what a great product, what great entertainment. Little or no educational value unless you believe it is important to train young and old to be able to espy cats in national costume lurking in the throngs of humanity that populate the main tourist spots of the world.

A book for all ages, with even grandparents keen to demonstrate that their faculties have not been impaired with age ( and obsessional viewing of 'Strictly Come Dancing') and desperately striving to be the first to find 'Bob' and beat those young, cocky, eager, and highly competitive but absolutely adorable grandchildren. In years to come I can hear them saying to their children "My Grandad always used to find Bob first......I think he must have cheated and worked it out beforehand".......how did they know that?!

A wonderful colourful book for all ages. Trying to find Bob was a challenge in itself because of so many faces and people in the illustration. A great book.
