from the book jacket:

After a series of bestselling books for adults that have established him as 
perhaps the world's most beloved storyteller, country vet James Herriot has 
won the hearts of younger readers as well, with his illustrated stories for 
children, Moses the Kitten, Only One Woof, and The Christmas Day Kitten. 
(Grownups like them too. The San Diego Union wrote of The Christmas Day 
Kitten, "The sweet story is told with warmth, humor and tenderness that 
evokes smiles and tears. Ruth Brown's lively and colorful illustrations are 
a perfect complement to the narrative, matching Herriot's skill as a superb 
In Bonny's Big Day, Herriot and Brown have teamed up to tell the 
unforgettable and endearing story of farmer John Skipton and his old 
carthorse Bonny. Though the mare has been "retired" from farm work for 
years, Farmer Skipton visits her every day. When Herriot suggests that Bonny 
be entered in the Darrowby Fair Pet Show, Farmer Skipton is shocked at 
first. But when the Fair arrives, the surprise will be on everyone else.
Once again, James Herriot has fashioned   another   captivating story about 
the bond between people (even gruff old farmers) and their animals. With 
Ruth Brown's illustrations capturing the rugged beauty of the Yorkshire 
Dales and the colorfül  sitè of a country fair, Bonny's Big Day is another 
treat for the new generation of Herriot fans.
