Sheep dog puppy Flash helps orphan Tom adjust to his new life in rural Scotland. Tom is determined to make Flash a champion! A classic story of friendship and acceptance by much-loved children's author Kathleen Fidler.

'The technicalities of sheepdog training and the suspense of the trials are conveyed in an accessible and entertaining manner... The characters of his uncle and aunt are presented with warmth and humour and the rural setting is convincingly portrayed.'


-- Treasure Islands: A guide to Scottish fiction for young readers aged 10-14


'Another home-grown story that will delight youngsters.'


-- Stewart Peterson, Greenock Telegraph


'First published in 1965, an attractive new edition of this lively children's story will appeal to younger readers today.'


-- Scots Magazine
