A RYEDALE author has launched a new book of puzzles themed on the work of the world’s most famous vet.

Julian Morgan, of Duggleby, who is best known for his books of Yorkshire-themed puzzles and sonnets, has created the new book of 50 puzzles based on the memoirs of James Herriot.

Julian said: “I was delighted to be asked to create this collection of puzzles by Kate Pawlett, centre manager of the World of James Herriot in Thirsk.

“The book should put even the most ardent Herriot fans to the test; animals and ailments, colleagues and customers, potions and powders of the original eight books of memoirs are all here, as well as on-screen portrayals of vets and locations both real and fictional.”

Ian Ashton, manager of the World of James Herriot, added: “I’m delighted that we can offer our visitors this new addition to our range. Julian’s puzzles will bring new ways for readers to connect again with the stories they love.”
