For five years, Bob, the creature Livi made friends with during her last visit to her grandmother’s in Australia, has been waiting for her, living quietly in the closet of Livi's mom's childhood bedroom. What kind of creature is Bob? Neither Bob or Livi can figure it out. He doesn't eat or sleep much, and it seems adults can't see him. Other children believe him to be an odd-looking chicken. But if Livi can't figure out what he is, how will she ever figure out how to get him home? Bob is a remarkable story of friendship, fairytale and growing up. Recommended for grades 3-5.
