Overview

Lassie Come Home by Eric M. Knight

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.

This is a delightful and heartwarming story that takes place right after World War I, in England and Scotland. The storyline centers on Lassie, the Carraclough's pet Collie. The family loves their dog very much... but when hard times hit, the family is forced into making a life-changing and heart-wrenching decision. The town of Greenall Bridge could always depend on seeing Lassie trotting down the streets with her owner, young Joe Carraclough. As the story unfolds, you will discover how determined and loyal that a dog can really be. Through the experiences of Lassie, you will meet many of the villagers, some with thoughtful regards, and some characters with bad intentions. No matter what kind of situation, someone is always there to guide Lassie on her way. This book was originally published by Eric Knight in 1940. Only 3 years later, the author died. However, the classic story of Lassie has been told again & again since then, in other revised & adapted books, and also in movies. I think almost anyone would enjoy this story. The dedication and perseverance of the dog, to the quaint villages of England and Scotland, and all the characters within, along with their lovely British accents... I savored every word!

When my daughters were 3 and 6 this was the first of the many classic stories I read to them before nap time. In reading the original version to them, I realized what I had missed as a youngster in reading only edited editions. This story took us several days to read, one chapter at a time, but it was worth it; not only for a bonding time with my girls, but for life lessons as well.

This is a great book, about a young boy and his dog during the Great Depression that changed millions of peoples' lives, Eric Knight lived during this time period and had a background on how to write a story of Lassie and the boy that loved her.

This book, a heartwarming tale of a dog and boy's bond, is an unforgetable calssic. I read it in 4th grade and now, as a Junior High schooler, I have fallen in love a second time. I can honestly say that I will read it again in the future. I highly recommend it.

Wow! My teacher is reading me this book, so far, it is, well, its so good, i don't know what to say! At first, we did not want to read it. Now, we would regret it if we did not read, the famous, Lassie Come-Home.

I loved the book Lassie Come-Home. I recommend this book not only to children but also adults. If it was left up to me I would give this book an award. It was very descriptive and interesting. Very, very majestic book. Loved it.
