Leon and BobBook - 1997
Leon is new in town and doesn't know anyone. That's when he makes friends with Bob. No one else can see Bob, but Leon knows he's there. One day a boy just Leon's age moves in next door. Leon would like to meet him -- as long as Bob comes with him. But suddenly Bob is gone and Leon feels very alone. Is he brave enough to make friends without Bob beside him? Evocatively illustrated and with a charming surprise ending, Simon James's comforting story speaks to the heart of a child.
