"A worthy successor to James Herriot and every bit as endearing" Alan Titchmarsh

Gervase will be talking about and signing his first novel, The Little Village School, which is a wonderfully entertaining story with heart-warming portraits of eccentric, gossiping adults and straight-talking children. This novel has all the light and shade of Gervase Phinn's Dales books.

Professor Gervase Phinn was a teacher, then General Adviser for Language Development in Rotherham before moving to North Yorkshire, where he spent ten years as a school inspector - which provided much source material for his books. Gervase Phinn is best known for his best-selling autobiographical novels: The Other Side of the Dale, Over Hill and Dale and Head Over Heels in the Dales, published by Michael Joseph, which he read on the Radio 4 programme 'Book of the Week.' Head Over Heels in the Dales was a number one best¬seller.
