A treasure of a story kids and families have shared since 1940, Lassie Come-Home has become one of the best-loved dog stories in the world. Lassie is young 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, this beautiful 75th anniversary edition showcases the original text and illustrations (by Eric Knight and Marguerite Kirmse, respectively) with a striking new jacket design and a new introduction from bestselling author Ann M. Martin. 5¾" x 8¼"; 256 pages
Life-like and super-lovable, this plush reproduction of Lassie the dog is as remarkable as the canine heroine herself. Featuring long, thick, soft fur with snow-white paws and sparkly brown glass eyes, she sits patiently waiting to join any child’s next adventure (and hug). A great way to bring the Lassie Come-Home story to life as kids read along! 12"H.
