    Maybe this was just one book too many I enjoyed it a lot, just not quite as much as some of the others

    I m sorry to have come to the end of this delightful and amusing series.

    This the fifth instalment in the Dales series reached the same quality as the first three, after the slightly slow going fourth book It had a gossipy quality to it, as though sitting down to talk with some friends It was extremely easy reading.The biggest positive for me was the high quality of the prose by Phinn, both of the beautiful Yorkshire landscapes and the people that he meets in the course of his school inspecting Here is a good example a cheerful little cleric with a round This the fifth instalment in the Dales series reached the same quality as the first three, after the slightly slow going fourth book It had a gossipy quality to it, as though sitting down to talk with some friends It was extremely easy reading.The biggest positive for me was the high quality of the prose by Phinn, both of the beautiful Yorkshire landscapes and the people that he meets in the course of his school inspecting Here is a good example a cheerful little cleric with a round red face and white bushy eyebrows which curled like question marks below a shiny pate It perfectly captures the essence of the person described and helps lend a very visual characteristic to the book.I also deeply loved the wonderful Yorkshire dialect that Phinn employs to lend character to the people, especially the children For instance, here is a snippet of Joseph s conversation in one of the Nativity performances that Phinn attends That s a rum do We ve been on t rooad all day and both on us are fair fit to drop We re fair fagged out I ve got t wife out ere an she s havin a babby, tha knaas My only real complaint about the book was the way that Phinn constantly referred back to tales from previous books they tickled me the first time round, but by the second or third time I ve read it it simply feels like padding.This is a small negative, though, and didn t greatly hamper my enjoyment of the book

    Another brilliant story from the School Inspector Gervase Phinn, this made me laugh out loud with some of the children s observations and brought years to the eyes with some of the sentimental and sad tales, a child who had been in care becoming the target for bullies because he was different and a lady who had served the education authority for 40 years in what she believed to be a minor role being recognised for that service are poignant Highly recommended

    I loved this update about life as a school inspector in Yorkshire with so e laugh out loud moments at the expressions of many if the children, and Connie the redoubtable caretaker at the School Development Centre Gervase is now the proud father of a son and is struggling to balance everything as he is so busy and finds it difficult to say no to people.

    Fantastic book Full of excellent humour Always keeps me laughing throughout I love the way Gervase Phinn gets the pupils talking about their lives, and I often wish that I could be a School Inspector sometimes It s one of my favourite books because I felt like that I was a fly on the wall so I could see what was going on in the scenes.

  8. Christine says:

    I have now read all of this series of books, and I think this last one was the best one There were lots of laugh out loud stories that had me giggling uncontrollably A real gem Thank you, Gervase, for sharing your love of Yorkshire and its people with us It makes me really want to visit this beautiful county and see it for myself.

  9. Karen says:

    Phinn has been compared to James Herriot, and these books are his stories of being appointed as a Schools Inspector in the Yorkshire Dales Many chuckles about the funny things the children say or do, and likewise about life in the slower paced world of Yorkshire.

  10. Adele says:

    If only my workday were enlivened by such characters as Sidney, David, Mrs Savage and Connie Gervase s recollections of life as a school inspector in Yorkshire are guaranteed to raise a smile or two.
