Whether discovering the beauty of the Northern Lights in Lapland, making friends with the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, or learning the secret of the Blue Mountains in Australia (do you know why they look blue?), Nobby Travels is a delightful way to introduce children to the sights and culture of popular European and international countries.

As Mr Benn is fondly remembered by children born in the 70s, Nobby is the modern-day canine equivalent designed for 4-9 year olds of the 21st Century.

Each night, Nobby bounds through his dog flap which magically transports him to a new city or country where he is greeted by a breed of dog who befriends him and takes him on an adventure involving fact and fantasy, teaching him a little about the country his is visiting. He always manages to bring home a souvenir!

Nobby Travels books are the creation of husband and wife team Darren and Julia Spence who were inspired by their own Chocolate Labrador, “Branston” (pedigree name Nobby Bronie)
