Bob, a rebellious but big-hearted dog, will have to face his worst fears and undertake a dangerous journey to recover his lost sister. With the threat of an impending hurricane, Bob will have to lean on his best friends — Ivan and Ruby — find the courage he didn't know he had and learn the true meaning of friendship and family. Bob, Ivan, and Ruby have touched the hearts of millions of readers, and their story isn't over yet. Catch up with these beloved friends before the star-studded film adaptation of The One and Only Ivan hits theaters in August 2020! Bob, un perro rebelde pero de gran corazón, deberá enfrentarse a sus peores temores y emprender un peligroso viaje para recuperar a su hermana perdida. Con la amenaza de un inminente huracán, Bob habrá de apoyarse en sus mejores amigos —Iván y Ruby—, hallar el coraje que no sabía que tenía y aprender el verdadero significado de la amistad y la familia.


"Bob proves to everyone (and finally himself) that there is a big heart in that tiny chest…and a brave one too. Applegate picks up where her Newbery Medal winner left off, and fans will be overjoyed to ride along in the head of lovable, self-deprecating Bob on his storm-tossed adventure. His wry doggy observations and attitude are pitch perfect." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on the English-language edition

"Ricocheting between entertainment and poignancy, the dog's musings on his past and present give way to an urgent chronicle of survival. Applegate deepens the suspense (while, ingeniously, amplifying the humor) with the appearance of Bob's long-lost sister. The novel's fluid meshing of loyalty, forgiveness, and trust will leave readers hoping that the author has more one-and-only stories to tell." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on the English-language edition

"In this story of true friendship, hope, and courage, Bob learns to appreciate and cherish those he loves. Driven by favorite characters from The One and Only Ivan, Bob's story is delightfully heartfelt and adventurous. Castelao's illustrations add additional beauty to the story. Readers will be lining up to read this sequel." —School Library Journal, starred review, on the English-language edition

"Explore[s] themes of forgiveness, redemption, and heroism. A playful canine glossary and expressive spot illustrations further enhance the appeal of this sequel." —Horn Book Magazine, on the English-language edition

"Bob supplies a sharp, lively voice that young readers will enjoy. Fans of the first book will love catching up with cherished friends, and newcomers, too, will enjoy this heartfelt story of survival." —Booklist, on the English-language edition

"Much like Bob himself, this book has an appealing mix of frenetic energy and somber contemplation. Commentary on animal welfare and climate change is carefully woven into the narrative, giving readers food for thought but never overwhelming what is ultimately a tale of friendship and forgiveness." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, on the English-language edition
