JAMES HERRIOT was a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England for over half a century until his death in 1995. His bestselling books have sold more than twenty million copies in the English language alone; they include 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.Christopher Timothy starred as James Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small, the internationally renowned BBC television series based on Herriot's work. Mr. Timothy is a thirty-year veteran of stage, screen, and television.


Readers and viewers of the series All Creatures Great and Small will find old friends in this captivating collection of nine reprinted canine stories. Tricki Woo, the pampered Pekinese, appears in three of them with his mistress, Mrs. Pumphrey. "Rags to Riches" features an amateur vet who nurses a starving, abused dog back to health. We meet Brandy, who noses in trash cans; a sheepdog, Jock, who races Herriot's car on the road; Jake, Gyp, Herman‘all these dogs provide material for lively, heartwarming stories. And Holmes's illustrations are endearing. 850,000 first printing; Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club and Crossings Book Club alternates. (Sept.)

Gr 9 Up‘James Herriot's Favorite Dog Stories is read very convincingly by Christopher Timothy, who starred as James Herriot is the BBC television series, All Creatures Great and Small. His British accent is precise and easy to understand. The stories are delightful and often reveal much more about the dog's owner than the dog itself. Since these short stories are presented in unabridged form, they lend themselves to use by reluctant readers as an interesting enticement into the literary world. There are many natural breaks. Those who enjoy Herriot's animal tales will enjoy this tape immensely.‘Pat Griffith, Schlow Library, State College, PA
