Overview

Momo has always wanted a Lhasa terrier—a dog like the ones the Buddhist priests hold sacred in their temples. And her dream is realized when a trader brings Pempa to her parents' tea house. But after a band of robbers steals the valuable dog and quickly escapes with him into the mountains, Momo is determined to catch them and recover her beloved Pempa. To do so, she must follow the Great Trade Route across the mountains—a path that most people avoid, and which will surely put her life at risk. Momo undertakes a dangerous journey from the mountains of Tibet to the city of Calcutta, in search of her stolen dog Pempa.

I read this book when I was a kid. I thought, "hey, what a cute girl with a dog on the cover". But, I was in for a surprise. This girl has spunk and guts. I really don't want to ruin the book in any way but it's about a Himalayan girl with her dog on a wild adventure. Kinda like Lassie, I guess. You'll just have to read it.
