ABOUT US

We are Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr a writer/illustrator, husband/wife duo who live in a barn on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with our three small kids and a goofy blue dog. We make books together, all day, every day. When our friend Drew Bunting is around, he writes songs and sings them. Learn more about us HERE.

Want to find out if your kid likes our books?

Grab your kid and pick a title from the list below. We generally say our picture books are for kids aged 3-7, but books are each different, and so is each kid. We picked these titles to give you a sense of the range of topics and styles and sensibilities you might expect from a year of Bobbledy.


The Girl With Frogs in Her Ears

The unlikely meeting of a brave little girl and a lonely old ogre proves that brisk conversation is not a prerequisite for a winning friendship. Buy it HERE.


Archipelago

Featuring such verbal confections as ‘bandicoot’ and ‘hornswoggle,’ this book celebrates the pleasure (and ease) of using long and wonderful words. Buy it HERE.


The Imaginary Dragon

A dragon named Bill wants nothing more than to be useful. Crippled by self-doubt, he goes on a journey to discover whether or not he is imaginary. Buy it HERE.


Even Ninjas Eat Asparagus

This visual tour of human obligations lets kids know that even teachers, opera singers, vampires, and ninjas have to do their chores and etc. Buy it HERE.
