Draw with Rob Biddulph activity pack

The viral phenomenon #DrawWithRob is now a brand-new activity book to help you to draw at home with creative genius and official World Book Day illustrator Rob Biddulph!

You may have spotted Rob’s brilliant drawalong videos on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok or even on your TV – and did you know that Draw With Rob is now a Guinness World Record breaker too? Rob teamed up with Art World Records to smash the record for the largest ever online art lesson in May… perhaps you joined in too?

HarperCollins Children’s Books and Rob Biddulph have been busy making DRAW WITH ROB into an incredible activity book for every family to share, so you can join Rob and learn to draw your favourite characters – from Penguin Blue to a very Hot Dog, and many more!

Rob firmly believes that anyone can learn to draw and his easy-to-follow instructions and warm-hearted humour make drawing a joy, whether you’re home-schooling, learning to draw or just having fun. This brilliant book brings together some of his best-loved drawalongs from dinosaurs and aliens to pugs and self-portraits, with loads of new activities to keep you busy and get your creativity flowing. It even has perforated pages so you can tear them out and display your art!

The activity pack contains:

- Introduction and what you’ll need
- A Gregosaurus step-by-step drawing guide
- Spot the difference with Penguin Blue
- Odd Dog Out dress-up drawing activity
- Great Alien Bottom Swap activity

Rob’s original hit videos are also available at, and on Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram.

We would love to see photos (these do not need to include children’s faces) on social media using HarperCollinsCh and readingagency on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram and the author robbiddulph on Twitter.


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
