"Within her books, Mairi McLellan has done something many children's authors are unable to do: she has created non-fiction books that are compelling and highly readable. May all of children's non-fiction literature begin to engage students as McLellan's books do. If this is a new trend in children's books, teachers across the US would be so grateful.”
Mrs Moyer, 5th & 6th Grade teacher (10-12 year olds), USA.

Richard the Vet
What do the grown-ups do?
by Mairi McLellan

Richard the Vet is the fifth book of the series ‘What do the grown-ups do?’ Based in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, the series aims to teach children aged 5-10 years about different jobs. By writing through the eyes of the children, the tone is kept chatty and light-hearted as three local children meet real workers who explain their jobs.

Richard is a large animal vet. Specialised in equine (horses), he spends most of his time between farms and stables. His hours are long but he loves his job. On their adventure, the children learn how Richard helps farmers to manage their prize bulls, how horses’ teeth never stop growing, how to remove rotten teeth and how to avoid getting kicked!

Other books in the series include: Joe the Fisherman, Papa the Stockfarmer, Sean the Actor and Fiona the Doctor. Coming soon, Gordon the Wildlife Filmmaker.
