The book is illustrated with drawings and photographs and relevant objects from the collections of National Museums Scotland and its Scottish Life Archive. An eight-page activity section includes: Dog issues - true or false? How well do you know your dog? Wordsearch. Follow in Bobby's pawprints. Greyfriars Bobby is the latest title in the Scotties series of activity books for young readers.
