Livy can't remember her first visit to her grandmother's house all the way across the world in Australia, though she does seem to recall a 'wrong chicken' and something unusual about a black chess piece. She definitely doesn't remember the strange little creature she finds in the wardrobe. His name is Bob, and he's been waiting for her to come back for more than five years - that's a very long time to sit in the dark. Livy and Bob piece together the mystery of who Bob is, and a beautiful friendship unfolds. Now Livy must help Bob find his way home. Bob is a tender and engaging story for young readers about loyalty and the power of imagination, set in an Australian country town.
