Can't think of a better way to spend some lazy summer days than to pick up this witty, hilarious and human animal loving book. Why can't my vet be like this colourful Paul?
Brilliant reading 😁
A brilliant Book
Enjoy a good read from the horses' (pony's)) mouth. Laughs in every chapter plus a good story line with fascinating, believable, characters. Thank you for taking me to another world of pets, owners and their amusing problems.
Brilliant book, thoroughly recommend it. You won't want to put it down.
Pets Aplenty, although a novel, comes from the pen of a retired vet, and it’s fun to speculate just how much of this delightful book is based on Malcolm Welshman’s actual experiences! Whatever the truth, his skill with words and ability to tell a jolly good story will , I suspect, keep those pages turning.
Loved the James Herriot vet series. In Pets Aplenty I've now found a worthy successor. Absolute happiness medicine.
A wonderful warm & funny book, well worth reading!
Very funny
Malcolm's books always leave me in stitches 😂
I really enjoyed this book, I felt i was there with the writer taking part in all he was doing. It was a fun book to read.
One of the best books I have read, I don't often laugh out loud when reading but never stopped laughing with this book. The way the incidents are described it is like being there and joining in.
What a delightful read. Makes one feel good all over.
loved it!!!
Malcolm Welshman enchants with his wonderful writing, delightful characters and great sense of humour. The pun-loving and warm-hearted vet, Paul Mitchell, faces a colourful motley of characters, human and non, at Prospect House, the animal hospital. Paul is so lively and engaging that he draws you right into the surgery - I almost wished to pass him swabs and a scalpel.
This is a really funny and entertaining book.
This book is the third in a series and I cannot wait until the next one is published. It is about a vet and animals, but you don't have to be an avid animal lover to appreciate the hilarious events that the hapless vet experiences. Thoroughly recommend this fabulous book.
Great very funny
A great humorous read, especially if you like animals.
Wonderful read. Funny and sad in parts. A good insight into a vets life.
Reading a good book about pets and animals can be hard to find. The author of this series has manage to pack yet more humor and great stories into another of the pets in a pickle series. If you are a lover of animals as I am you will love this book.
