Gervase Phinn is back with his tales of life as a school inspector in Yorkshire. His colourful cast of characters have now become firm favourites: the eccentric staff at County Hall as well as the children themselves, who find ways of embarrassing the school inspectors with innocent ease. We reconvene with Christine Bentley, head teacher of Winnery Nook School, the well-named Mrs Savage, and not forgetting the Queen of Clean: Connie. Gervase Phinn has an extraordinary talent to entertain, and the latest instalment to the Dale Series is heart-warming, wry, and will make you laugh out loud.More

Funny little ditties
Gervais, recounts his tales as a schools inspector with humour and sensitivity, he obviously loved his role and the special relationship he builds with children and staff alike.
He recounts the tale of some school decorators, who haphazardly dispose of some paint thinners down the toilet.....then describes the chaos that ensues after one if them disposes of a cigarette whilst sitting on the unflushed toilet. Priceless
Listened to him live at the theatre before, which at the time I thought was unbeatable, but as he narrates his own books this was on a par.
Laughed my socks off
Thank you mum for introducing me to such a witty author.
