Product description

Synopsis

"Nana, your face needs ironing!" "The nativity play's off, Miss - the Virgin Mary's got nits." "When you're dead, Grandpa, can I have your watch?" "When I was little, I thought that God was like Captain Birdseye without the fishfingers'. Young children are nothing if not honest, and their honesty is invariably disarming and comical. Who better to discover their innermost thoughts than best-selling author and former school inspector Gervase Phinn? From his lifetime of school visits, and talking to parents and grandparents, Gervase has put together a delightful compilation of children's wise words, insightful observations on life and their amusing comments about others.

From the Author

One delightful and unexpected result of the publication of my autobiographical accounts about my time as school inspector in the Yorkshire Dales is the phenomenal amount of mail I have received. Interested readers have entertained me with letters, cards, anecdotes, poems and little stories about what their children and grandchildren have said. Some were witty, others hilarious and a few were deeply poignant.
Robert Flanagan, director of Dalesman Publishing, suggested that I might like to let others share in my enjoyment of the pieces and further suggested that we ask readers of Dalesman magazine to submit their own ‘little gems’ to add to the collection. Hence this anthology which I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I have compiling.
