Quotes & Awards

  • There is nothing in this story that excludes pre-teens and older listeners, but if you want the younger ones in the back seat to be amused, try 'James Herriot's Animal Stories.' Patriot News

  • “Reader Christopher Timothy portrayed the semi-fictional Yorkshire veterinarian James Herriot in the wonderful BBC television series "All Creatures Great and Small" and has recorded versions of Herriot's work in such productions as the abridged Every Living Thing, (Audio Renaissance, 1993). He's just as good a reader as he is an actor. His cultured British voice twinkles with humor and shades into heartwarming emotion as appropriate. The stories of the animal doctor's vicissitudes with a variety of animals are kind and affecting; Timothy makes the characters real and well individuated. With his crystal articulation, he is marvelous, and so is the music from the television series. AudioFile
