This Troll Illustrated Classics version is adapted from the original classic by Alfred Ollivant, and retold by Don Hinkle, with full color illustrations on every page, by Frank Riccio and Doron Ben-Ami.

A heart-rending story about two bitter rival sheep farmers and their sheepdogs competing for the coveted Shepherd's Trophy in northern Britain in the 1800's. Villagers whispered, "He'll stop at nothing!" "No, not even murder."

Adapted to about third to fourth grade level. A sample of the more challenging vocabulary words: muttered, bleak, coax, resented, overcast, humble, smattering, defiantly, artificial, assassin.

Pub. 1983. A classic children's book which all will enjoy. Themes woven into the story: love, moral strength, grit.

If Bob, beloved champion sheep dog, wins the famous Shepherds' Trophy again - it will be his forever. But Adam M'Adam, a bitter, lonely man, is determined that his dog - Red Wull - shall win the coveted prize. How the trophy is won - and lost - and how the dogs and their masters are affected by the struggle, makes this an exceptionally fine dog story.
