Overview

Momo has always wanted a Lhasa terrier - a dog like the ones the Buddhist priests hold sacred in their temples. And when a trader brings Pempa to her parents' tea house, Momo's dream comes true. Then it is shattered. A band of robbers steals the valuable dog, and quickly escapes with him into the mountains.

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.
