Bob was a regular exhibitor at 'The Scottish National Boat Festival' [until 2005], as well as many other venues including historic castles in Scotland.  Originals and prints of his artwork have sold around the world. Somewhere along the way he learned clarinet and saxophone to pursue his lifelong love of jazz.

Buko is the Philippine word for "coconut".  This is a child's comic-book style story of this wonderfully useful tree, demonstrating its myriad uses and its place in a sustainable ecology.  Great fun, and guaranteed to intrigue the enquiring mind ...

Meet the Bukos is a lighthearted but educational look at coconuts and their invaluable place in our lives ... Illustrated by the author in comic book fashion for children of all ages,and even adults, with the intent of encouraging readers young and old to think about coconut usage and its benefits.  The book does not tell the whole story but is intended to whet the appetite so that those interested can find out more for themselves.





Timmy is given a wonderful red balloon.  While playing with it in the fields he lets go of the string and the wind carries it away.  A horse and a bird agree to help him get it back, and all is well again.   Timmy learns the benefits of kindness and co-operation, and is careful not to let go of the balloon's string again!  Colorful and striking illustrations throughout by the author will make this a hit with any child.

Soon they are off on a magical journey, learning about kindness and consideration for others, escaping a grumpy tree, befriending wildlife and fairy folk, and returning from their aerial trip to the seaside just in time to avoid discovery.


The adventure that began in An Elephant in the Window continues with this comic-book style story. The children return to find their friends the toys have been thrown out. After another adventure they rescue them and smuggle them home to safety
