The Little Village SchoolThe Little Village School by Gervase Phinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve always been a huge fan of Gervase Phinn’s writing. He brings together lots of parts which I like such as; humour, English village life and the Yorkshire dialect. This book is a delightful tale of a tiny school on the verge of closure, a new Head Mistress is appointed and great changes are about to take place, but not everyone approves. New friends are made and some old wounds begin to close in this first book in the series.

  1. Glancing at the cover I feel that it’s a children’s novel, but looking at the Amazon page gives no indication of whether or not it is, and reading the summary on the Amazon page leads me to believe that the novel is a not a children’s story, especially since the book is 400 pages long.


  2. A very valid point! I’ve never thought about it before, because I’ve read several other books by this author. Gervase is an ex teacher, schools inspector, writer and public speaker. His books, for adults, are full of warmth, humour and wisdom as he brings you witty tales from the Yorkshire Dales.
