The bestselling picture-book edition of Eric Knight's classic story is now a chapter book-perfect for children just starting to read on their own.

Lassie is Joe's prize collie and constant companion. When Joe's father loses his job, Lassie must be sold. Three times Lassie escapes from her new master, and three times she returns, 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. Traveling nearly one thousand miles over punishing terrain, Lassie makes her courageous and painful way home to Joe. They are never separated again.

Lassie Come-Home is a classic, heart-warming tale about the love between a boy and his dog. The acclaimed picture-book edition by Rosemary Wells and Susan Jeffers is now a chapter book perfect for young readers
