Product Description

Book Description

Another entertaining slice of Fairacre life from the bestselling author of VILLAGE SCHOOL. Abridged edition.

Product Description

The story of the village goes back a long, long time, and it still goes on. I have listened to my neighbours' accounts of tales long ago, and with what unfailing curiosity I observe the happenings of today!'

From an unusual weight-loss recipe found in an old notebook - and used with alarming consequences - to the queen of copycats who drives her neighbour mad with anger, OVER THE GATE is a hugely entertaining collection of tales from Fairacre, past and present.

Miss Read, the schoolmistress, continues to attract odd stories and village folklore, and retells them with her characteristic compassion and humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual stories 14 Jan 2003
By C. M. Collier VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Not quite what we usually expect from Miss Read,this collection of Fairacre short stories are sometimes comic(Mrs Pringle's Christmas Pudding) sad (The Wayfarer) or strange but true (you'll see what I mean).
They're all interesting and well-told,and the illustrations by JS Goodall are a joy.
