Here is another of James Herriot's beloved tales from his career as a country veterinarian, illustrated and retold for children.

As always in Herriot's stories, we meet a colorful cast of characters, including the dog of the title, a friendly but mysterious stray who comes to beg in the village market; the vet himself and his wife Helen; and other pets and pet owners of all shapes and sizes. Finally, there is Police Constable Phelps, who closes the case of the market square dog with an unexpected "arrest."

The Market Square Dog glows with warmth and with James Herriot's ever-present love of country life. And Ruth Brown's vibrant illustrations provide the perfect visual counterpart to the text, transporting the reader to the welcoming world of the Yorkshire Dales.
