Joan B. (JonasP) reviewed All Creatures Great and Small (All Creatures Great and Small, Bk 1) on
I bought this book to give to a friend and decided to reread my own copy. I like fact that although there is an overall story of the book, each chapter usually contains a story of its own that begins and concludes within that chapter. This book and its sequels are not for the faint-hearted relating to medical procedures with animals, but they are well-written, educational, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
