Big Bob, Little Bob

By James Howe
Illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson

It’s not easy to become friends with someone who is nothing like you – but surprising things can happen when you give it a try.

A comforting story of friendship for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes, this is the story of two boys, as different as different can be. Big Bob likes trucks and throwing balls and being loud. Little Bob likes dolls and jingling bracelets and being quiet. No matter what they do, they do not do it the same. But when they become new neighbours, they might just find a way to be friends... With humour and tenderness, James Howe and Laura Ellen Anderson beautifully depict the struggles and joys that come when friendships are forged between different kinds of people.

  • Little Bob likes bracelets, dresses, and dolls and will be a beacon for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes.
  • A topical story about the challenges of a budding friendship.
