Overview

From the bestselling author of Pets in a Pickle. Vet Paul Mitchell returns in this second instalment, Pets on Parade, to recount more hilarious goings-on from Prospect House. The main characters old and new include the elderly receptionist, Beryl Wagstaff, senior partners, Crystal and Eric Sharpe, the senior nurse, Mandy Fox and the junior nurse, Lucy Gentle. The eccentric tales including Mr Grimaldi, a magician whose rabbit is too sick for his show and Madam Mountjoy, a white witch whose black cat, Antac, Paul has to attend to at her ‘Wiccan Shoppe’ in Westcott. Paul finds himself in some sticky situations outside Prospect House. Forget undulating paddocks teeming with giraffe, zebra and wildebeests, there are pens and paddocks awash with mud, in which there are two gazelles, a camel, some monkeys and an ostrich. Followed by an aviary of budgerigars, some cockatiels and a pen overstocked with guinea pigs! This enchanting and delightful story will have you laughing from start. In the tradition of the James Herriot books, Pets on Parade is a humorous account of life as a young vet detailing the highs and lows of working with animals and their eccentric owners. Drawing on his own experiences as a vet, author Malcolm Welshman has achieved a true insight into country life and the rollercoaster that is veterinary practice.

    Not as good as first but still good

    This was a nice read. It is the second book of a series. While it wasn't as good as the first, it was close to it. I love books about animals. I just don't like to see them hurt or dying. One animal died in the first book and one in this one, so be warned about a tissue alert. I really enjoy the author's sense of humor. I don't really care for the accents and London slang, but am more than willing to over look what I do not care for, because there is so much to these books I do enjoy. I think the never in a hurry twins are my favorite characters. I am looking forward to finding out which girl, the vet ends up with. These books are well written, have a great plot and are well edited. These are not children's books as there mild sexual situations and references. I think mature tweens and older readers as well would enjoy these books. I know I did.

    Charming book!

    I read both Pets on Parade an Pets in a Pickle.....both won my heart. Super stories of a new country vet and with a love line included. I understand a 3rd book will be out at a later date. Quick read. Lots of grins, but you may need a hankie!
