Product Description

Since the publication of Moses the Kitten in 1984, children have found a delightful friend in James Herriot. His award-winning storybooks for young readers--many adapted from tales in All Creatures Great and Small and Herriot's other bestsellers--bring the farmyard world of Herriot's Yorkshire to radiant life. Featuring a host of adorable animals and colorful townsfolk, each of the stories is narrated by the country vet himself, with all the warmth, caring, and good humor that have made James Herriot beloved the world over.

Now all of the country vet's books for children have been collected in one volume: James Herriot's Treasury for Children. Each story is presented in its original, oversize, full-color format, accompanied by the warm, evocative illustrations of Peter Barrett and Ruth Brown. Together they comprise a wondrous Herriot menagerie, a family treasure that will be passed, with joy and affection, from generation to generation. Recommend for ages 7 and up, 256 pages.

Author Bio

James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing. At age 23, Herriot qualified for veterinary practice with the Glasgow Veterinary College, and moved to the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire to work in a rural practice. He would live in, work in, and write about the region for the rest of his life. Though he dreamed for years of writing a book, his veterinary work and his family kept him busy, and he did not start writing until the age of 50. In 1979, he was awarded the title Order of the British Empire (OBE). His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.

    I remember reading the James Herriot books when I was young and this book brought back lovely memories of reading the series. It was wonderful to find this beautiful book which I could read to my 5 year old. She now loves the James Herriot stories as much as I did and can't wait to be able to read them for herself. Some of the language in the book is not what we would use, however it is used in the context of the time and culture, therefore I don't have a huge problem with it.

    The stories are engaging and keep even young ones interested until the last word. I would recommend this book to anyone, it is an ideal read aloud for little ones and a great precurser to the All creatures Great and Small series.
