The Ghost of Greyfriar’s Bobby

Written by: Ruth Brown

First line: “How long until we meet Mom and Dad?” Tom moaned.

Why you should read this book: Inspired by the true life story of a little dog’s devotion to his master, this charming picture book shows two modern children, bored of sightseeing, becoming interested in the history of Bobby. This faithful mutt spent fourteen years guarding the grave of his master, living in the churchyard, and being fed and cared for by the people of the village. A wonderful tale for jaded children, dog lovers, and history buffs.

Why you shouldn’t read this book: More of a cat person, really.
