It's unusual for me to mention the packaging for an audio, but The James Herriot Collection, is a knockout. Herriot's warm, joyous, three-volume series about life as a small-town veterinarian in Yorkshire in the 1930s All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful is boxed together as a gift set with fabulous full-color, wraparound photographs of stone hedgerows, green valleys and the very creatures, both great and small, on the slipcases and the discs themselves. Now digitally remastered, Christopher Timothy reads again in a voice that makes these beloved stories sing.
