Judy | 4 comments This book was probably published in the 1960s. A boy is in the hospital after being hit by a car (his dog was hit too). A man, maybe a small magical type man, comes to his room and they go on a trip to Scotland wearing pith helmets. They meet Robert the Bruce and a collie and I think there is a battle, the boy wakes up in the hospital and gets to keep the collie. Bittersweet ending, I think the first dog was killed by the car. I think it is a short book, self-contained, not part of a series. I think the collie from Scotland is named Ban.

Glad you found your book, Judy. I marked your request as Solved by clicking the small "edit" link after the topic header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app.

slauderdale | 138 comments Thanks to Rosa and Judy for Judy's initial post and Rosa's answer - I was looking for this book too, and Rainbowheart spotted your thread and brought it to my attention (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...). I'd been wondering about this book for a few years but only got around to asking last year. Nice find.
