As the title states, this story is about Shadow, a sheep dog, born on the farm from one of the other sheep dogs. Her name was Jessie and she had three pups, two were sold, and the third was also sold, but kept returning to the farm, and so the son of the farmer, a boy called Johnny was allowed to keep the pup, providing the dog worked for his living, as did the other dogs on the farm.

Johnny called the dog Shadow, as he was constantly by his side. He trained the puppy himself, and Shadow also learnt many ways from the other dogs on the farm. There was Jessie; she guarded the house and the yard. Tinker, Rafe, and Dandy were all sheep dogs. Bob was a mongrel, but still worked the sheep, and belonged to Andy the shepherd.

Author Bio for Blyton, Enid

Author Image

Enid Blyton (1897-1968) was a prolific English author of children's books. Born in London, she began writing while still in school. Her first attempts at writing were rejected by publishers which just made her more determined to succeed. She trained as a teacher and in her spare time continued to write. Her first book, a collection of poems, was published in 1922. Her first series of books, "Old Thatch", began in 1934 and eventually encompassed 28 books. In the 1940's she began to churn out books sometimes three or four per year. By the 1950's she was publishing upwards of 50 books per year. In all, she wrote over 750 books which sold over 600 million copies. While critics called her writing unimaginative and lacking literary merit, this did not stop her adoring fans from scooping her books off the shelf. Even after her death, her endearing stories continue to draw the rapt attention of children everywhere. (Enid Blyton Society)
