NEW James Herriot Puzzle book

James Herriot Puzzle book created by local author based on the books and the T.V. series “All Creatures Great and Small”.

A new puzzle book has been created by Julian Morgan, of Duggleby, that is based on the memoirs and TV series written by the famous vet and author Alf Wight OBE (James Herriot).

Julian is best known for his books of Yorkshire-themed puzzles and sonnets, and he has now created a new book of 50 puzzles based on the memoirs of James Herriot.

Julian said: “Kate Pawlett, centre manager of the World of James Herriot in Thirsk made the suggestion for the puzzle book and I was delighted to be asked. “It includes animals and ailments, colleagues and customers, potions and powders of the original eight books of memoirs as well as on-screen portrayals of vets and locations both real and fictional. The book should put even the most ardent Herriot fans to the test.”

Ian Ashton, managing director of the World of James Herriot, added: “I’m delighted that we can offer our visitors this new addition to our range. Julian’s puzzles will bring new ways for readers to connect again with the stories they love.”
