If you loved ET, and who didn't, you'll love "Bob" by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead. Bob is the story of Livy who goes to Australia, after 5 years and rediscovers a zombie or should I say 'not- Zombie' Bob in her cupboard. The story talks of love and forgiveness and your child will find it endearing and exciting but on another level, you too will root for the Australians who are fighting a drought. Will both aspects be fulfilled? There's only one way to find out. Yes, read the charming book. I guarantee you'll love it as will your child.
