  1. Loved this book Have not read Herriot in ages, but am sure I missed this one, and it was good Love the stories about all the animals big and small , and the colorful characters that have been in his life, like t vet wit the badger Very touching also in places and yes, I shed a few tears.


  2. I love James Herriot s books, but this one wasn t as engaging as others I have read of him It is still worth the read, but I didn t have as many laughing out loud moments.
