I am slowly collecting all my classics for my kindle. I read this as a child and still enjoy reading it today (many decades later). This is a story every child should read and enjoy. Well recommended.

Other reviewers have commented on having read the book many years ago. This book was first published in 1985. This is Greyfriars Bobby by Lavania Derwent. Is is not the children's classic Greyfriars Bobby by Eleanor Atkinson.

This is a large print edition of a story which may have a relationship to the original book - but is definitely NOT the original story of Greyfriers Bobby.

I bought this in an attempt to buy a Large Print version of the original. I suspect others have done the same.

Yes it's not the original, but don't let that phase you. The tale is told just as well and was perfect for my son, a reluctant reader.
