Lassie Come Home by Susan Hill


Lassie Come Home by Susan Hill

First published in 1940, Lassie Come-Home has become a cultural phenomenon and one of the best-loved dog stories in the world, inspiring several movies and TV shows. Now, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the original book, comes a picture book with a fresh and appealing commercial look just right for a new generation of dog lovers.


A greatly simplified, attractively illustrated version for younger children... The simplified plot skillfully retains the drama of the dog's bravery and devotion... Large-format watercolor illustrations bring the Yorkshire village and countryside to life, with particularly appealing depictions of bright-eyed Lassie. A helpful map of England and Scotland on the book's first page shows the journey that Lassie takes from northern Scotland back home to Yorkshire. An irresistible treat for dog lovers. Kirkus Reviews
