Bob Robber and Dancing Jane

Andrew Matthews, Bee Willey

Bob Robber only came out at night and the night had got into him. He could stand so still that spiders didn't notice him and spun webs around him, but he envied Dancing Jane's light feet and happy dancing. Bob Robber cannot dance and so he tries to steal her shadow.

This is a striking, poetic text matched with magical illustrations. It offers an older picture book audience a thought-provoking allegory of how simple goodness can overcome the darkness that can be in all of us.
