Using the sparsest vocabulary, Barnaby Richards creates a visually stunning world explored by a robot whose language consists solely of the word "Blip." As readers follow the robot's journey, they will delight in the surreal vistas and remarkable inhabitants of the planet, all while being gently guided through a heartfelt story of finding the familiar in an unfamiliar place.
Barnaby Richards lives in London, where he shares a studio with his wife Alice and their cat Mosca. He has been doodling pictures of his little robot in the margins of notebooks and the corners of pictures for many years. Barnaby was inspired to write Blip when he felt it was time his robot found a friend.
