All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot

All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot

Guest Reviewer: Sadaf

All Creatures Great and Small is a recounting by James Herriot, an aspiring veterinarian, who finds an apprenticeship in the rural Yorkshire Dales. Herriot takes us along on his multiple visits – some in middle of blistering winter nights, and tells chilling and heartwarming tales of the animals and their farmers. Weaved in with tragic tales of loss and love are lighthearted moments, particularly Herriot’s relationship with a Pekinese, Tricki Woo who has his own stationary and occasionally sends letters and invitations to the budding vet.

I never imagined I could enjoy a book about a veterinarian this much. Herriot gives you insight into the complexities of a profession that most would never give a second thought. All Creatures Great and Small was a beautifully heartwarming book and I really never wanted it to end.
