“Jim Dale reads the stories with his enterprising vocal delivery and melds these tender stories into emotional yet satisfying experiences that reflect both the joy of having pets and the responsibilities involved with their care. Young listeners will learn the cycle of friendship, ownership, and companionship of unconventional pets and other animals.” ―Dr. Flora Joy, Parents' Choice Awards
“Dale employs a variety of entirely convincing rural accents in his portrayals of the country folk who ask for the vet's help and share their tales with him. He also captures all the kindness of the beloved Herriot in this collection for animal lovers of all ages.” ―AudioFile, Winner of an Earphones Award
“This charming title defines family listening…The eight short stories were selected especially for youngsters, yet adults will gladly listen along. Narrator extraordinaire Dale lends the perfect avuncular tone.” ―Booklist
“No doubt, if cows could talk, they'd sound just like Dale.” ―Scholastic Parent & Child
“Just the sort of thing you hope will imprint on the memory screen of a young child: fresh, clear, pure, and good.” ―Commonwealth
“Jim Dale, the English actor who's won multiple Grammy's for recreating Hogwarts with his voice has finished up work on the audiobook version of Herriot's classics. Like Goldilocks, Dale's got it just right.” ―Babble.com's Droolicious blog
