“You’re back. Took you long enough,”
What if you discovered an imaginary friend from your childhood whom you had completely forgotten about? Livy, now ten, visits her grandmother again after five years. She doesn’t remember much until she finds a small green creature in the closet, right where she had left him (so he tells her). Bob can’t remember where he came from. Livy had promised to help him find his way back home and he has been waiting for her all this time. Can she help Bob? Can she remember her way forward?
This slim chapter book is sweet and silly both. Livy and Bob tell their story in alternating chapters, as they reunite and their friendship deepens. Readers who like magic and childhood nostalgia will enjoy this quick read.
