James Harriot was amazing as a children's author. The animal stories were some of my favorites.

There was a stray dog at the market one day going from booth to booth and begging for treats. The local vet tried to get near the dog and check him out because he had looked a little thin. The dog wouldn't let anyone too close before he would run off. The local vet had been talking to a police officer about the dog and they had both been watching the dog.

Once upon a time there was a little dog. This little dog appeared every morning in the market square. He would sit up on his back legs and beg for food. He was always very grateful for the snacks he received, but refused to let anyone pet him. Until the day he was found on the side of the road with a broken leg.

Will the Market Square Dog finally accept a master?

Conclusion. A super-cute story with sweet painting-style illustrations. Recommended.

James Herriot is a wonderful author, writing from his experiences and his heart. From all he's seen and experienced as a vet in the country. In this book he tells of a stray dog that wonders into the market; friendly and takes the food offered to him but also shy. But a few days later he is found to have been in an accident so the vet and his wife cares for him hoping that he has a family... in the end he does find a family to love him.
