Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead

Calvert Library's Book Bites for Kids

Enjoy our presentation of Bob written by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead and published by Feiwel and Friends. It’s been five years since Livy and her family have visited Livy’s grandmother in Australia. Now that she’s back, Livy has the feeling she’s forgotten something really, really important about Gran’s house. Bob, a short, greenish creature dressed in a chicken suit, didn’t forget Livy, or her promise. He’s been waiting five years for her to come back, hiding in a closet like she told him to. He can’t remember who―or what―he is, where he came from, or if he even has a family. But five years ago Livy promised she would help him find his way back home. Bob has won numerous awards, including Booklist Editors' Choice - Books for Youth Award, 2018 and a Mythopoeic Award: Children's Literature in 2019.Bob is recommended for ages 8 and up for suspense.

'When You Reach Me' by Rebecca Stead

Love YA Like Crazy

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss Rebecca Stead's 2009 young adult novel, 'When You Reach Me'. They also experience some major high school flashbacks and talk about Carrie's new cat. We both really liked the book, and we recommend you read it before listening to the podcast, which contains our usual mix of spoilers and swearing! At one point in the discussion, Jake references a Mitchell and Webb comedy sketch, which you can see online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn1VxaMEjRU . Have a suggestion for what book we should talk about on June 1, when Jake and Carrie will be recording an episode in person? Tweet at us at @loveYApod, or email us at podcast at loveYAlikecrazy.com.
