    Penguin 70 s booklet made up of several short chapters from the memoir series which I d always taken to be like James Herriot, but with schools not animals It s about twenty years now since I enjoyed the Herriot books so can t compare closely The Phinn series seemed like something it was good to know was out there just in case that sort of book was needed but on the basis of this, too much of it might be boring.What s here is fairly cosy but certainly cliched Too many descriptions stuffed w Penguin 70 s booklet made up of several short chapters from the memoir series which I d always taken to be like James Herriot, but with schools not animals It s about twenty years now since I enjoyed the Herriot books so can t compare closely The Phinn series seemed like something it was good to know was out there just in case that sort of book was needed but on the basis of this, too much of it might be boring.What s here is fairly cosy but certainly cliched Too many descriptions stuffed with the most routine of adjectives The narrator s character doesn t often have much that s interesting to say in conversation There s too much about the other staff in the office, which might work okay on TV but was unexciting on the page Scenes from an infant school were cloying And if I were to read books like these, I d want them, out of simple personal preference, to be set a bit longer ago this is recent enough that staff gossip includes speculation that a PA has had a facelift A few bits and pieces were reasonably interesting Hearing what goes on in the school inspectorate s office, e.g they run courses as well as checking schools A loveable eccentric old teacher, Mr Lapping, who d spent his whole life in the same remote village, who turns out to be exemplary at his work and not above the odd bit of crafty politics as a retort for the not entirely welcome publicity and co option onto working parties And finally, the bit which decided this as 3 stars not two, a group in an A Level English class putting on a genuinely amusing Yorkshire village version of Hamlet, Act I

    Nice, down to earth Yorkshire humor in this light and light hearted intro to some of the characters, young and old, a school inspector encounters.

    Gervase Phinn tells endearing, entrancing stories of his life as a school inspector in the Yorkshire school districts His narration is straightforward, displaying a deep care for the people of all ages he encounters, from a young boy who is part of a complicated family and another who is worried about looking a prat in his costume, through a cleaning lady who rules her centre with an iron fist and bureaucratic individuals who take themselves too seriously to a teaching head teacher who has been Gervase Phinn tells endearing, entrancing stories of his life as a school inspector in the Yorkshire school districts His narration is straightforward, displaying a deep care for the people of all ages he encounters, from a young boy who is part of a complicated family and another who is worried about looking a prat in his costume, through a cleaning lady who rules her centre with an iron fist and bureaucratic individuals who take themselves too seriously to a teaching head teacher who has been doing his job excellently for decades and the much younger woman who becomes Phinn s wife He uses true humour amusement that does not deny the seriousness of life The Yorkshire version of the opening of Hamlet in the final extract is a gem.Phinn se vertellings uit sy jare as inspekteur van skole in Yorkshire is tegelyk snaaks, universeel herkenbaar en diepsinnig deernisvol Sy liefde vir mense spreek uit al sy waarnemings Die Yorkshire variant van die opening van Hamlet is kosbaar verby

    This was just the right length to be enjoyable I have read one of this chap s books in full before now and it was a little too much winsomeness for my taste.I arrived back at work the day after reading it to find that the school inspector had indeed called and we had two subject inspections later that week I picked the wrong day to take off, whereas the person who gave me the book was prescient at best, or had a malign influence on events at worst.
