The best thing about the story of Greyfriars Bobby is that it is absolutely true. There really was a little dog in Edinburgh called Bobby: he was a Skye Terrier, and he loved his master, a shepherd called Auld Jock, very dearly. When Auld Jock died Bobby would not leave his grave in Greyfriars Churchyard. People tried to take the little dog away, and found him a home in the country, but still he came back and lived in the churchyard, where his friends brought him food. Soon all the orphan children in the institution near by knew and loved the faithful little terrier and to Tammy, the crippled boy, he meant even more than to the others. But although he played with them every day, Bobby lived on his own, returning to his Master's grave every night for fourteen years, and when he died he was so famous that a fountain with his statue on it was put up in his memory. This book is the story of Bobby, his friends, and his adventures. It was filmed by Walt Disney.

It was written for grown-ups, but every child will enjoy it, and with the help of our glossary on page 220 you'll learn some interesting new Scottish phrases as well.

For boys and girls of 8-12 years.
