Olivia is staying at her Grandmother's home in Australia while her mother and the baby travel to see some of her Mom's old friends. Things seem strange when she comes into the house—it is not familiar at all. She feels pulled toward her old bedroom, especially the closet. When she opens the closet doors she finds Bob. Bob is green, wearing red feetie pajamas with chicken feathers taped all over. Poor Bob has been waiting for five years in the closet for Olivia to return and help him find where he is from and what he is. One by one they piece clues together until Bob can return home—and the rain can return to Gran's farm!
