Livy can’t remember her first visit to her grandmother’s house in Australia, but she does seem to recall a `wrong chicken’ and bumping down the stairs.
She definitely doesn’t remember the strange little creature she finds in the wardrobe. His name is Bob and he doesn’t know what he’s doing there, but he’s been waiting for Livy to come back for more than five years. That’s a very long time to sit in the dark.
Clue by clue, Livy and Bob unravel the mystery of where Bob comes from and what Livy has forgotten in this magical story about friendship and loyalty and the power of imagination.

A sweet and charming adventure that follows brave and determined Livy and her hilarious 'not chicken' friend, Bob. They need to get Bob home which proves to be tricky when they don't know where he came from! Livy has more problems than just Bob with becoming a big sister and remembering all the things she forgot. Lovers of Runt will love this!
