Some edgewear and rubbing, spine and cover creases, some page edges a bit rippled; pages clean, none loose.; He has been called by some' the James Herriot of schools'. Phinn recalls his first year as a County Inspector of Schools in North Yorkshire in this warm and humorous memoir. 'He meets some large- than-life characters, from farmers and lords of the manor to teaching nuns and eccentric caretakers. Best of all, he discovers the endearing and disarming qualities of the Dales children. Readers will enjoy his keen ear for the absurd and his sharp eye for the ludicrous.'; This author 'is such a delight. I like his books better than Herriot's!' -Norma H. Also recommended by Vera J. and Holly H. of the ATS and Kristi J. of the AT and DES email discussion groups and Lesley J. and Marjorie of the DES email discussion group.
