Head Over Heels in the Dales is the third volume in Gervase Phinn's bestselling Dales Series

'Could you tell me how to spell "sex" please?'

Gervase Phinn thinks he's heard just about everything in his two years as a school inspector, but a surprising enquiry from an angelic six-year-old reminds him never to take children for granted.

This year Gervase has lots of important things on his mind - his impending marriage to Christine Bentley (the prettiest headteacher for miles around), finding somewhere idyllic to live in the Yorkshire Dales, and the chance of a promotion. All of which generate their fair share of excitement, aided and abetted as usual by his colleagues in the office.

In Head Over Hells in the Dales, join Gervase Phinn in the classroom where he faces his greatest challenge: keeping a straight face as teachers and children alike conspire to have him laughing out loud.

“Worth a read”

I would definitely recommend any of the books in this series to anybody working in education. Every chapter has something you'd be able to relate to.
