The Heart of the Dales (Google eBook)
Gervase Phinn is back with his tales of life as a schools inspector in Yorkshire.
His colourful cast of characters have now become firm favourites - the mostly mad staff at County Hall as well as the children themselves who find ways of embarrassing the school inspectors with innocent ease. We reconvene with Christine Bentley, head teacher of Winnery Nook School and now Gervase's wife and mother of their son, the well-named Mrs Savage and not forgetting the Queen of Clean – Connie.
Gervase Phinn has an extraordinary talent to entertain, and the latest instalment to the Dale Series is heart-warming, wry and will make you laugh out loud.

Another lovely book by Phinn. I am sad to have read the last in this series but I am looking forward to The Little Village School books. Read full review
