It’s been five years since Livy and her family have visited Livy’s grandmother in Australia. Now that she’s back, Livy has the feeling she’s forgotten something really, really important about Gran’s house. It turns out she’s right. Bob, a short, greenish creature dressed in a chicken suit, didn’t forget Livy, or her promise. He’s been waiting five years for her to come back, hiding in a closet like she told him to. He can’t remember who―or what―he is, where he came from, or if he even has a family. But five years ago Livy promised she would help him find his way back home. Now it’s time to keep that promise. Clue by clue, Livy and Bob will unravel the mystery of where Bob comes from, and discover the kind of magic that lasts forever.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Visiting her grandmother in Australia, Livy, ten, is reminded of the promise she made five years before to Bob, a strange, green creature who cannot recall who or what he is.

A mysterious creature named Bob has been waiting for Livy right where she left him - in the closet at her Gran's house, five years ago. Now Livy is back and ready to fulfill her promise to help Bob get home. Warm, funny, and satisfying.

Such a heart-felt story about a little green monster, Bob, left in a closet for many years by his beloved friend Livy. Wanting to know his heritage, Livy helps Bob hunt down his family in her grandmother's back yard, in Australia. A sweet book about the importance of friendship and imagination.

Lovely and numerous look at the magic of childhood imaginary friends. ...or are they imaginary? Sweet.

Cute story about magic, friendship, and a strange looking chicken. Listened to the audiobook version during a run - which ended up being longer than anticipated because I wanted to hear the end.

Cute children’s book. It was one of the entries in the Goodreads Choice Awards. The Australian setting, finding Bob’s home clue by clue, and the magic of friendship are what drew me to this book. Written in a light hearted and whimsical way, I could see a class of grade schoolers enjoying a teacher reading this to them.

I adore this wonderful little book. The voice of Bob is so endearing and funny. It's a quick read and would be a great read aloud book to read along with your kids.

A warm and adorable story about friendship, sprinkled with mystery, magic and adventure. Engaging and easy to read. The only jarring note is the Australian setting, which I felt was not well integrated into the story. It made me wonder why two American authors chose to set their story in Australia, and also whether other Aussie readers feel the same on this point.
