Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Beautifully illustrated and told with Herriot's mixture of compassion, sense of atmosphere and ability to write about [both] people and animals." —Philadelphia Inquirer
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Old John Skipton tends his two aging cart horses well, even though they've been replaced by a tractor. He shows up at the Darrowby Fair with his grey horse, Bonny, as an entry in the Family Pets Class of showings. Both John and Bonny are dressed up and polished for the occasion, standing in line with other unusual pets and their owners: a pink piglet, a turtle, a nanny goat and a hooded falcon. But the winner is John's Bonny. Herriot, the all-seeing veterinarian, inspires his simple message of sensitivity and compassion by showing how much his characters love and care for their animals. The dimensions of thoughtful humor are as evident in this story as in all his writings. Brown's accompanying paintings add a necessary context, depicting, for example, the piglet's owner as a farm boy, the rabbit's as a sweet-faced little girl and the falcon's as a stately country gentleman. BOMC selection. All ages. (October)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4 Herriot relies on a personal experience to create an endearing human interest story. This story centers on a gruff old farmer and his two retired carthorses who, for the past 12 years, have provided their owner with companionship. After seeing the farmer care for his horses, Herriot encourages him to enter one of the mares (the other is nursing a sore leg) in the family pet class of a local animal show. The farmer spruces up both himself and the horse for the big show and walks away with top honors. Readers, old and young alike, are bound to be moved by this simple tale, as Herriot again shows the deep feelings that can be experienced between human beings and animals. Brown's soft, exquisite paintings nicely capture the mood of the characters and the picturesque English countryside. A lovely book that adults will enjoy sharing with and distributing to children. Tom S. Hurlburt, Minneapolis Public Library
From Barnes & Noble
Farmer John Skipton was so busy working on his farm that he had not time for amusements. So what could possibly persuade him to put on a shiny bowler hat and take his beloved carthorse Bonny to the Darrowby country fair? The best-selling author shares with us another charming story drawn from his career as a Yorkshire veterinarian, with Ruth Brown's lively color illustrations perfectly complementing his delightful narrative.
