Secrets & Buried Memories: Read an extract from Bob by Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass

Start reading now

Ten-year-old Livy has returned to her grandmother’s farm after five years and there are so many things she can’t remember. She doesn’t remember the horses, the pigs or Rufus, the green stuffed elephant, but most importantly, she doesn’t remember her dear friend, Bob.

She does remember the chickens, particularly one that was a bit unusual…

Armed with only a Lego set and a dictionary, Bob (a small green creature dressed in a chicken suit) has been patiently filling in the time until Livy returns. Bob remembers everything about his time with Livy, but he doesn’t remember where he came from and where he belongs. He hopes that Livy will be able to help him get back home – wherever that is.
