OVERALL RATING 8/10

Compassionate characters, magical ending, great family read aloud

Bob is a sweet story, perfect for a family read-aloud or a solo read for older kids. The characters are compassionate, charming, and funny. I thought the book would have some sort of metaphorical ending where the magic was in Livy's imagination, but it turned out to be actually true fantasy. Definitely worth a read!
