Until I was in third grade, I was going to be an astronaut.  And then I saw the Challenger explode on TV and that was the end of my space flight dreams.  From then on I wanted to be a veterinarian because I loved animals and I loved James Herriot.  There is no other author that could get all of us laughing, from my brother and sister to my dad, like Dr. Herriot.  His adventures and characters are classics.  The beauty of this book (and all of his) is that they are actually a collection of short stories.  You can read one and move on with your day.  A perfect way to unwind from your day or start a new one!
