Gervase Phinn leads a very full and active life: a bestselling author and poet, teacher, freelance lecturer, educational consultant, school inspector, visiting professor of education and, last but by no means least, father of four. The majority of his time is spent in schools with teachers and children. He is best known for his autobiographical accounts of his time as a school inspector in the Yorkshire Dales, which have been likened to James Herriot's books.
This is a heart-warming new children’s book in the style of Michael Morpurgo.
Bury Free Press
Simply written, the tale has a warmth and directness that will appeal to young readers. The characters are convincingly alive, and their predicaments real.
