Lassie Come-Home

Eric Knight. Henry Holt & Company, $18.95 (248pp) ISBN 978-0-8050-7206-8

The most faithful of all dogs returns in Lassie Come-Home by Eric Knight. Begun as a short story in the Saturday Evening Post, the tale was so well received that Knight expanded it into this novel, first published in 1940 by John C. Winston. This story of a boy and his beloved collie has been retold in many formats but appears here in its original unabridged version, with Marguerite Kirmse's charming b&w interior illustrations and new jacket art.
