It’s been five years since Livy visited her grandmother in Australia. Now that she’s back, Livy has the feeling she’s forgotten something 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. He can’t remember who—or what—he is, or where he came from. 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 unravel the mystery of where Bob comes from and discover the kind of magic that lasts forever.

Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead, two masterminds of classic, middle-grade fiction, come together to craft this magical story about the enduring power of friendship.
