Product Description:

Enjoy 8 charming animal stories from the author of All Creatures Great and Small. Set in Yorkshire, England, youll read about an abandoned kitten finding a home, a dog who only barked once in his life, as well as stories about horses, cows and sheep. These stories have a pleasantly calm, nostalgic feel and are accompanied by beautiful illustrations, making this a wonderful bedtime story treasury for your little animal lover. 272 pages, hardcover.

Publisher Description:

Children have always found a delightful friend in James Herriot. His award-winning stories for young readers bring the farmyard world of Herriot's Yorkshire to vibrant life. Featuring a host of adorable animals and colorful townsfolk, each of the stories is narrated by the country vet himself, with all of the warmth, caring, and good humor that have made James Herriot beloved the world over. Here, in James Herriot's Treasury for Children, we find all of his books for children collected in one beautiful volume. From the springtime frolic of Oscar, Cat-About-Town to the yuletide warmth of The Christmas Day Kitten, these stories--radiantly illustrated by Peter Barrett and Ruth Brown--are perennial favorites, and this new complete edition will make a wonderful gift for all readers, great and small. Taken together, these stories comprise a wondrous Herriot menagerie, a family treasure that will be passed, with joy and affection, from generation to generation.

We received a copy of this book as a gift when my own children were small. Over the years it proved to be a favorite for our entire family. The characters are so memorable and the illustrations lovely. I am now purchasing a copy for another young family.
