A beloved classic gets a beautiful new look.

Lassie is Joe’s prize collie and constant companion. But when Joe’s father loses his job, Lassie must be sold. Three times she escapes from her new owner, and three times she returns home to Joe, until finally she is taken to the remotest part of Scotland—too far a journey for any dog to make alone.

But Lassie is not just any dog.

First published in 1940, Lassie Come-Home has become one of the best-loved dog stories in the world. This beautiful edition showcases the original text and illustrations within a striking new jacket.

About the Author

Eric Knight; Illustrated by Marguerite Kirmse

Eric Knight was born in 1897 in Yorkshire, England, the countryside that was the background for Lassie Come-Home. He moved to the United States as a teenager. After graduating from Cambridge Latin School in Massachusetts, Mr. Knight married and settled on a farm in Pennsylvania, where Lassie Come-Home was written and where the collie who inspired the book is buried. Mr. Knight was killed while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II.
