Bob the Artist

Marion Deuchars

Bob the bird is just like all his friends, apart from his skinny legs. When Bob is teased, he decides to try and change himself to fit in. But little does he know where all his efforts will lead him…

An affirming picture book for age 3+ about the power of art and of being confident enough to be yourself.


Meet Bob: black feathers, red beak and skinny legs. Though he doesn’t know it yet, Bob is an artist. But for now he is being teased for his skinny legs by a cat, an owl and other birds.

Visiting the gym to build his muscles, eating sausages and cake, even dressing up – nothing helps. But visiting an art gallery changes everything. Soon, with his beak decked out in styles of Matisse, Pollock or Pop Art, his tormentors are dazzled and delighted by Bob’s look.

Author and illustrator Marion Deuchars works with a tight palette – mainly black, white, and flashes of colour. And just like Bob the Artist, her creative spark and originality brilliantly saves the day.
