But most of all he misses his wife Helen; pregnant with their first child. The question is constantly hanging over him – will he be going to war? And when will he get to go home? Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers.

Adventures in the English countryside and beyond with the Yorkshire veterinarian and #1 New York Times–bestselling author of All Creatures Great and Small. When World War II ends and James Herriot returns to his wife and new family in the English countryside, he dreams mostly of Sunday roasts and Yorkshire puddings, but new adventure has a way of tracking him down. Soon Herriot finds himself escorting a large number of sheep on a steamer to Russia, puzzling through the trials of fatherhood, and finding creative ways to earn the trust of suspicious neighbors who rely on him for the wellbeing of their beloved animals. Herriot’s winning humor and self-deprecating humanity shine through every page, and his remarkable storytelling has captivated readers for generations. “This is Herriot at his best,” said the Washington Post of this New York Times bestseller by the author of All Things Bright and Beautiful and Every Living Thing. The Lord God Made Them All is a true story of postwar England that, according to the Columbus Dispatch, “just explodes with the joy of living and loving and caring.”

Carlo Collodi, eigentlich Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Meister Seppel, der Marionettenschnitzer, kommt aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus: die Puppe, die er gerade geschnitzt hat, ist lebendig! Er tauft sie Pinocchio und schnell zeigt sich: Pinocchio ist eigensinnig und rücksichtslos. Um ihm ein Schulbuch besorgen zu können, verkauft Meister Seppel seine einzige Jacke. Auf dem Weg zur Schule fühlt sich Pinocchio aber magisch von einem Puppentheater angezogen. Das ist der Anfang eines bewegten Abenteuers, in dem sich Pinocchio durch seinen Eigensinn immer wieder in große Probleme bringt. Trotzdem erfüllt sich am Ende Pinocchios großer Wunsch - ein richtiger Junge aus Fleisch und Blut zu werden.
