From the bestselling author of Pets in a Pickle. Vet Paul Mitchell returns in this second instalment, Pets on Parade, to recount more hilarious goings-on from Prospect House. The main characters old and new include the elderly receptionist, Beryl Wagstaff, senior partners, Crystal and Eric Sharpe, the senior nurse, Mandy Fox and the junior nurse, Lucy Gentle. The eccentric tales including Mr Grimaldi, a magician whose rabbit is too sick for his show and Madam Mountjoy, a white witch whose black cat, Antac, Paul has to attend to at her 'Wiccan Shoppe' in Westcott. Paul finds himself in some sticky situations outside Prospect House. Forget undulating paddocks teeming with giraffe, zebra and wildebeests, there are pens and paddocks awash with mud, in which there are two gazelles, a camel, some monkeys and an ostrich. Followed by an aviary of budgerigars, some cockatiels and a pen overstocked with guinea pigs! This enchanting and delightful story will have you laughing from start. In the tradition of the James Herriot books, Pets on Parade is a humorous account of life as a young vet detailing the highs and lows of working with animals and their eccentric owners. Drawing on his own experiences as a vet, author Malcolm Welshman has achieved a true insight into country life and the rollercoaster that is veterinary practice.
