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.
A light-hearted collection of poetry, plus a handy description of all the different types of poems. It’ll strike a chord with many children.
A deliciously hands-on poetry collection . . . full of wit and wisdom and a palpable sense of wonder that is deeply infectious.
The School Librarian
