About this book

Bobby (English edition) | Young Adult Fiction

Elizabeth Pienaar

When Bobby’s beloved Natasha dies in an attack, he’s passed on, then abandoned. It seems as if he’ll end his days in an animal shelter. When Dash, Jessie’s beautiful Alsatian, dies of leukaemia, she can’t overcome her grief. But in another world, Natasha and Dash won’t give up . . . all they need is one willing heart, one act of kindness, to open a pathway. Step by step, Natasha and Dash nudge Bobby and Jessie towards each other. Based on a true story, Bobby and Jessie learn that as long as hope is alive, anything is possible.

Bobby affirms the unbreakable bond between man and dog, exploring the ageless connection between the two and how it can conquer all in the face of adversity and sorrow. Uplifting and deeply touching, Bobby is truly an inspiring read for anyone who has ever loved, lost or found ‘man’s best friend’.” — Joanne Lefson, animal-welfare advocate and author of Ahound the World: My Travels with Oscar

Also available in Afrikaans.
