The Best of the Best (and Beasts)

James Herriot and Jim Dale together?! I've love Herriot for decades, and every now and then search iTunes Store to find out what Jim Dale has been doing. Yes it's a children's book (technically) but who can't use "warm and joyful". This author and reader are a perfect match - thank you!
It's curious it's marked as "explicit", but I suppose there are people who don't consider reading about disease and injury in animals as entertaining - but this book isn't scary and doesn't seem to be offensive. It's less scary than a lot of the Grimm fables!

Incredibly charming.

What else is there to say? Other than, delightful!

Explicit?

I am so confused . . . why is this considered "explicit"? Is it mislabeld by itunes? I sense not, but how can it be both for kids and young adults and explicit?
