All the books in this series are wonderful. Only sorry that at this time, this is the last in the series. As with all Gervase' books, you feel as though you know all the characters personally as he brings them all to life. Roll on the next one please!

Another gem from this talented author who brings humanity, humour and intelligence to his books. We travel through the lives of the people in the village with a story stitched together by the village school and its pupils. A lesson to us all!

Having read all of GP's output, and seen him speak on a number of occasions. I have always found him to be inspiring, particularly for someone like me, whose professional life has been deeply rooted in the education of our primary age children.

I recently downloaded "The School Inspector Calls" and with eager anticipation began to read GP's latest novel. I finished the book, but sadly found it to be somewhat formulaic in style. Not up to GP's usual standard - come on Gervaise you've got miles more talent than James Herroit or Miss Read!!

Like the other two books in the series, this is a very relaxing comfort read - no surprises, not much of a plot, but the familiar characters are enjoyable to follow a little further. However, it has the same defect as the second book: a tendency to fill pages and pages with recap of events from the early books, often quite unnecessarily. Mr Phinn, I am quite sure most of the readers of this book will already have read the previous ones, and don't need all these summaries of what has gone before, which only pad the book out.

This is the third book in the series. Having been given the first two I immediately bought this one. Gentle stories with enough laughter and sadness to prevent it being the literary equivalent of chocolate boxy. The characters are so real that the reader instantly can recognise the traits of people they know. I can't wait to read more.

As with other Gervaise Phinn books I found this so enjoyable. It gives a picture of rural village characters that we can all recognize. The insight into the individuality of some of the youngsters is touching and endearing. The author knows how to leave us anticipating the next Little Village School novel.

Interesting new faces appear in the third of this series. Familiar plot lines are further developed and the Phinn descriptive talent is given free-reign. Compulsive reading as ever, and enjoyable story lines and character development introduce some elements that make the fourth book a 'must'.

this was bought for my brother-law as a Christmas Present, both he and his wife have been teachers, and have heard Gervase Phinn on the radio so we expect them to enjoy it. However your delivery was bang on time as ever so we were able to post to the Channel Islands in good time, thank you

Having read the first two books whilst convalescing last year, I was eagerly awaiting this next instalment and I was not disappointed! I look forward to reading what happens after the merger between the two schools, and to finding out what happens to Robbie, and to Miss Sowerbutts,.
