A true story of a dog's love and loyalty is retold and illustrated in sumptuous style

More than 100 years ago, a faithful little dog called Bobby kept a 14-year vigil by his master's graveside in Greyfriars churchyard in Edinburgh, Scotland. Bobby captured the hearts of the townsfolk and remains a legend still today. This 19th-century tale is now retold by Ruth Brown from the perspective of two modern-day children who come across the commemorative plaque outside Greyfriar's churchyard.
