A delightful story of romantic England. In this fictional account of his early years as school inspector, Gervase Phinn vividly describes the classrooms of the Yorkshire Dales, where children are often wiser than their teachers, and where many a lesson provokes laughter as well as learning. And back in the office, his colleagues are an unforgettable bunch: Julie, the office chatterbox, the irrepressible Sidney Clamp, and Connie, the caretaker from hell. Not to mention
the formidable Mrs. Savage, scourge of the inspector's office. Nothing controversial here, easy reading, pleasant language.
