Greyfriars Bobby

Eleanor Atkinson

Favourite Quote: Bobby does not need a monument, but I think we need one of him, that future generations may never forget what the love of a dog may mean, to himself and to us.

Review: An engaging tale of the famous Skye Terrier those familiar with Edinburgh lovingly walk past. Written in quaint Scots this takes us through the highs – and notable lows – of Bobby’s life as we learn how much this little dog love his owner. Perhaps longer than necessary this novel begins and ends on a high losing its way slightly in the middle. Enjoyable light reading for those who want a refresher on this classic story I heard of many times as a child which never fails to bring a smile to my face when ambling the cobbled streets off Greyfriars Kirk.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
