written by James Herriot
illustrated by Ruth Brown and Peter Barrett
Partial synopsis from Bas Bleu: Beloved writer and country veterinarian James Herriot is most famous for his charming semi-autobiographical novels about caring for pets and livestock in rural mid-twentieth-century Yorkshire. Fans (and newcomers) will be thrilled to know he also wrote eight delightful books for children that shared his warm humor and love for animals.
My Thoughts: This is such a sweet collection of children's stories! If you have any young readers just beginning their journey into chapter books, this would be a perfect addition to their library. Any animal lover will be charmed by the darling animals and their gentle caretakers who star in this lovely book.
