New York Times bestselling authors Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead, masterminds of classic middle-grade fiction, come together to craft a magical story about the enduring power of friendship. 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.

Professional reviews

"In alternating chapters, narrators Nora Hunter and Rob Dircks share the mysterious relationship between a girl and her once-upon-a-time zombie-like playmate. Livy has returned to visit her grandmother in Australia, her first visit having been as a 5-year-old. Bob has been waiting for her in the closet, having entertained himself over the years with Legos and a dictionary. Strange, one might say. Hunter and Dircks captivate listeners with youthful straightforwardness and wonder, bluntness and zaniness, all the while piecing the relationship together. Swirling around this mystery is another--the mysterious letters that all the neighbors receive--and a terrible drought. Could one mystery lead to the solution of another?
