Country veterinarian James Herriot has introduced countless readers to the dales and villages of Yorkshire—and to the delightful eccentricities of their human and animal inhabitants. In Blossom Comes Home, the newest tale from Herriot's adult books to be retold for children, we meet two new friends, Farmer Dakin and his cow Blossom.

Making his veterinary rounds, Herriot arrives at Farmer Dakin's on a sad day: the farmer has decided he must send away his old cow Blossom to make room for a younger animal. So Blossom is taken off to market. But Blossom doesn't want to go to market, and has ideas of her own—as the startled vet and farmer soon discover.

Blossom and her master will join the ranks of James Herriot's unforgettable Yorkshire characters. And with Ruth Brown's rich, colorful illustrations capturing the feel of farm and village, Blossom Comes Home will make a wonderful show-and-tell book for grown-up animal lovers to share with younger ones.
