|Plot Summary of All Things Wise and Wonderful|
|"In the third book of James Herriot's autobiography, he describes his wartime experiences - which, because of an illness, were abortive and didn't contain any fighting - and tells more stories about his life as a country vet in Yorkshire. Readers of the first two books will know exactly what to expect - stories about animals and people, sometimes funny, sometimes not. This book has the addition of some stories about Herriot's military life and pilot training. While All Things Wise and Wonderful is not as strong as the first two books in the series, there's still lots in it to like."
