A collie undertakes a 1000-mile journey in order to once again meet her former master at the school gate.

McMillan Palgrave

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.


The quintessential boy and his dog story. A time-tested favorite.

I loved this book! It was so sad how the collie did everything it could to get back to his owner. So sad too... It was a little hard to read though. Because it uses old english and sometimes it will take a while to read. But I highly recommend it! Do you best to understand it and it'll be great!
