Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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
