A light, entertaining read, perfect for the holiday suitcase. Gervase Phinn takes on the role of school inspector, and spends much of his working life travelling round the Dales, meeting a range of entertaining characters and engaging pupils. A sweetly nostalgic book bringing rural Yorkshire life alive in a way that's reminiscent of James Herriot's stories.

Reads as a series of notes from the author’s personal experiences, interesting enough but not massively engrossing or captivating hence it took me awhile to get through. A few smiles but not especially funny and the conversations written in dialect are hard to decipher at times. I have a pretty neutral feeling over this book, it’s a time passer but not a page turner, probably most enjoyable if you have a personal connection with school life and/or the Yorkshire dales.
