Product Description

Review

Packed with delightful and authentic characters, juicy gossip, precarious romance and good old-fashioned village drama, this is a warm-hearted and hilarious account of a struggling school in a small community (The Good Book Guide)

This heartwarming tale makes ideal holiday reading (News of the World)

As Yorkshire's favourite school inspector turns to fiction you can enjoy memorable characters and turns of phrase. (Choice)

Written with all the humour and warmth one has come to expect from this master storyteller. (Countryman)

There's gossip in the village shop, and the new curate is raising eyebrows. It's all classic Gervase Phinn (Choice magazine)

Book Description

The follow-up to THE LITTLE VILLAGE SCHOOL by the bestselling author of the Dales series, Gervase Phinn. A charming, warm-hearted and funny tale of life in a village primary school with a new headmistress.

5.0 out of 5 stars More news from the Dales'school 3 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Volume two in what will hopefully be a long series of books telling the story of a fictional school in the Yorkshire Dales, this is an amusing but realistic story, obviously drawing on the author's lifetime experience as a School Inspector. If you enjoyed the first book, then you will love this sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trouble at the little village school 15 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having previously enjoyed the first of this series by Gervase I was really looking forward to reading his second offering. I was not disappointed. The characters are so well drawn that you feel you actually know them and as with the first book I love the apt names he has given each person in the village. The story drew you along and thankfully all the characters ended up as I hoped they would. I was a little surprised to find myself actually feeling a little sorry for Miss Sowerbutts in this book. I hope the village books do not end here as I'd like to see how Danny and some of the others progress.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a nice follow up to the first book "The Little Village School". We learn about the fate of the school and its Head Mistress Mrs Devine. Mr. Phinn leaves room for a third book that I hope he will consider writing.

Story was enjoyable if a bit predictable. It was not quite to the standard of his earlier books about his time as an Inspector.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gervais Phinn 11 Dec 2012
By William
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just enjoy reading about young children at school, particularly in part of the country that I am not too familiar with. There is a tendency because he is a Yorkshireman, for him to overdo the sentiment and perhaps he exaggerates anything attached to living in Yorkshire but I still enjoyed it.
