A cracking book for all. The author has a honed skill in relating to adults and children alike, whatever their background.
Like its two predecessors `Dear Teacher' revolves around life at Ragley village school, its teachers, children, parents and local life but this book boasts more. We still have the daily anecdotes but stories are deeper and events are more colourful.
How lovely it is to be reminded of the importance of values particularly by children: "Our mummy says we're like different-coloured crayons..." said Rowena..."But we all live in the same tin," replied her twin sister Katrina.
This book will be your best friend. You will not want it to end as you read about the funny Pontefract strippers, the "cutest lil' city" of York , Mrs Earnshaw's baby daughter called Dallas (!)... going to "Devon" when you die and so very much more.
A walk down 1980s memory lane is not to be missed as we remember those flares in fashion and nostalgic notes from Abba not to mention the reign of Margaret Thatcher.
Best of all is our dear young Headmaster, Jack Sheffield. We all want a Jack in our lives. If you don't already have one you will be looking for one after reading this book. We experience the pangs of love he has for the lovely Beth and reflect on his words ...'while time might be a great healer, love was better'
This is an excellent read. If you have been a pupil, parent or teacher at some point in your life this will be your reference book on life. This book is so good that I found myself wanting to re-live my life amongst the descriptions and tales of life in Ragley.

I have just finished this book and once again cannot wait for the next...It takes me right back to my school days of the late 50,early 60's.
Jack I hope she says yes...........
I also brought the little book about the Christmas turkey...I read it to my grand daughter on Christmas Eve,who asks can we read this every year?
Well Done again Jack...all books are excellent and worth reading,however, you will need time on your side 'cause you will not beable to put them down.
Here's to number 4.......Hurry up.

Where to start with Jack Sheffield's third book about life as Head teacher at the local school in Ragley-on-the-Forest. We pick up another year at the school as the seventies turn into the eighties and see the changes that come with it, within the education system, the local village and nationally.

The undercurrent of the story for me is the relationship between Jack and the two Henderson sisters, Laura and Beth. Reading as we do, we see him flounder with his friendship with Laura, who has misinterpreted everything, whilst as a reader we know that he only has feelings and eyes for Beth, a fellow Head teacher, and at times you want to scream `just get the courage Jack' to put your love life in order.

It is an easy read, and has taken less than two days to read but I did not think it was as funny as the last book. The book needs to be read now; there are so many references to life in 1979/1980 that are actually a dig at the way life is like now. The excitement of personal stereos so only you can listen to the music without inflicting it on everyone else, comes in a generation now plugged into iPods. Abiding by union rules not to administer medicines in school, shows us that no one can help now, in fear of being held accountable if little Terry Earnshaw's cough medicine falls into the wrong hands or if Terry is given too much. Getting a television in the local pub, The Royal Oak is going to cause the local football team's post match team talks too much of an "extraction". No doubt they would be watching the football on it and talking about how successful Chelsea is (in division two then). Do not think in the times of the credit crunch that finances do not get mentioned by Jack Sheffield, they do.

Nothing really happens again in this book,, It sort of bumbles along... the on / off friendship / love of Jacks life is still there in the back ground. . The funny remarks made by parents and children alike have all been heard before . I did say I wasnt going to read another of Jack Sheffields books but I found this one lurking way down on my kindle. I wished Id left it there.

I got my first Jack Sheffield book for Christmas 2007, after reading the first I quickly purchased the second and have just finished the third. All books take me back to the 70's era from all aspects including, current affairs, fashion, confectionery. I felt I should have been eating a curly wurly and wearing shoulder pads whilst reading the latest book. I do hope Jack is well on with the fourth, it will be eagerly awaited by many fans. Looking out for a suitable 1970's hat for the Wedding... hopefully.

The book took me back to my school days. Very funny and very well written. I sometimes wish things in school were still the same!! i love the era. Ruby and Vera make me laugh as did the skinny father christmas (jack) . The author writes with great attention to detail and is well worth the read. Having read the last Gervase Phinn book, i found this more entertaining by far. Am putting this on my book shelf next to "now then lad" both great yorkshire reads.
