The Market Square Dog

James Herriot, Author, Ruth Brown, Illustrator St. Martin's Press $13 (32p) ISBN 978-0-312-03397-2
Yorkshire veterinarian and bestselling author Herriot has come up with yet another winning tale about one of the many animals that crossed his path over the years. This time it's a dog, which he spies begging in the town square one market day. The story of how the little stray finds a home with a sympathetic policeman and his family tugs at the heartstrings as only a Herriot tale can--and in all fairness, should probably carry a warning label for parents who have steadfastly resisted their child's pleas for a pet. As in their other collaborations, Brown's softly shaded watercolors recall an England of an earlier era, a place of cozy stone cottages and country gardens. All ages. (Oct.)
