Peter Wright from the hit TV series The Yorkshire Vet has written his first children’s book.

"Peter, Sue and a lot of Poo" is a rhyming picture book for young children, set on a farm.

It tells the story of Sue the cow, who has turned very smelly and Farmer John needs the vet to come and check her out. A chase through the farm ensues, past the sheep, pigs and ducks and into the barn, where Peter gets a lovely, if rather stinky, surprise.

Peter will read the story, sign copies of his book and there will be farm related activity sheets for children to complete or take away.
