Bob by Wendy Mass & Rebecca Stead ill Nicholas Gannon
- Mass and Stead have taken the most ordinary of names and created an extraordinary character with a story premise that is intriguing. Bob is the magical tale of ten-year-old Olivia's return visit to her grandmother in Australia. It's been five years since her last stay with Gran. Known as Livy, she struggles to remember people and events from so long ago. There are people and places that seem familiar. Livy wonders how and why she has retained these fleeting impressions. Gradually, with the help of Bob, she pieces together significant bits of information from the past.
