Editorial Reviews

"A greatly simplified, attractively illustrated version for younger children... The simplified plot skillfully retains the drama of the dog's bravery and devotion... Large-format watercolor illustrations bring the Yorkshire village and countryside to life, with particularly appealing depictions of bright-eyed Lassie. A helpful map of England and Scotland on the book's first page shows the journey that Lassie takes from northern Scotland back home to Yorkshire. An irresistible treat for dog lovers." -Kirkus Reviews
