Lassie come-home

by Eric Knight

Lassie's owner loses his job and is forced to sell her. After being brought to northern Scotland, she escapes and finds her way home to Yorkshire.

I read this to the kids, and they were enjoying it — until they watched the movie. Then they knew what happened, so were not too interested in the book. But eventually we finished reading it, and they did like it. It is a slow book, though — everything takes a long time in this story. It was first written as a magazine serial, and then expanded to book length, so that's likely why.
