9780140281293: Over Hill and Dale

Over Hill and Dale is the second volume in Gervase Phinn's bestselling Dales series.

'Miss, who's that funny man at the back of the classroom?

So begins school-inspector Gervase Phinn's second year among the frankly spoken pupils and teachers of North Yorkshire - the sight of Gervase with his notebook and pen provokes unexpected reactions from the children and adults alike.

But Gervase is far from daunted - he is ready to brave the steely glare of the officious Mrs Savage, and even feels up to helping Dr Gore organize a gathering of the Feofees - just as soon as someone tells him what they are! He is still in pursuit of the lovely headteacher Christine Bentley, but will she feel the same?

This is a delectable second helping of hilarious tales from the man who has been dubbed 'the James Herriot of schools'. In Over Hill and Dale, Gervase Phinn will have you laughing out loud.

Book Description Penguin UK, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This sequel to The Other Side of the Dale continues the story of Gervase Phinn working as a schools inspector in the Yorkshire Dales. Many of the same characters appear again: his fellow inspectors, quirks and all, the local landowner-cum-school governor, the eccentric caretaker at the staff development centre and, of course, the lovely Christine from Winnery Nook school who turned his head in the first book. But the real stars are the children, whose not-so-innocent remarks made that first volume so popular. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140281290
