The Heart of the Dales by Gervase Phinn
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 eccentric 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, 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.
