The perfect gift for fans of All Creatures Great and Small, this is a charming collection of classic stories from James Herriots much-loved books, with insights into his life and work from his children Rosie and Jim.

With astute observations and boundless humour, country vet Herriot captures the spirit of the Yorkshire Dales and of rural communities on the cusp of change, before tractors and machines had taken over and modern medicines and antibiotics transformed veterinary work. Along the way a beloved cast of characters emerges, from the squabbling brothers Tristan and Siegfried to Herriots hapless courtship and eventual family life with Helen Anderson. But its the animals which are at the heart of Herriots stories.

Whether hes dodging a raging bull on a risky artificial insemination assignment, becoming pen pals with Tricki Woo the spoilt Pekingese pooch, or the inevitable trials and tribulations of lambing season, theres never a dull moment in Herriots company.

At times moving and often laugh-out-loud funny, The Wonderful World of James Herriot will delight fans old and new.
