WORD is excited to welcome back local author Rachel Magee, author of The Bob Book, for a reading and afternoon of drawing and coloring activities.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Bob is a tattoo elephant. He was born in 2008. Bob’s main persona is Bob the Ninja, but he’s just an elephant trying to fit in. Like all of us, Bob goes through phases and changes the style of outfits he wears. Bob embarks on many adventures in his quest to figure out the things and places he likes most. The Bob Book can be drawn in. The cover is blank so that you can design and personalize your own copy by adding drawings or stickers or whatever you like! In the back pocket you will find your very own Bob the Ninja sticker, which you can take on adventures and hold up in photos to show where you and Bob have been together or you can stick Bob in a fun place you visited so that everyone can say “hello” to him.
