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.
