For this reading comprehension quiz you will be reading a short summary about the book All Creatures Great and Small, the first book in a series. This book is kind of an autobiography as the author, James Herriot (a/k/a Alf Wight), tells stories about different experiences he had while he worked as a veterinarian in England.
The book begins with his internship with Siegfried Farnon. Although it is one long story, it is also broken down into smaller stories that revolve around some of his animal patients. Because there are a number of smaller stories contained within, the story runs quickly and provides for a lot of fun moments.
After you have read the following summary, answer the ten questions that follow and see just how much of the story you were able to remember.
ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL
By James Herriot (A Summary)The book begins as Herriot starts off on his own after veterinary school. He is desperate to find a job and is offered the position as an assistant to Dr. Siegfried Farnon in Darrowby.
