"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars" is the second delightful collection of stories and poems from Gervase Phinn. Following on from the terrific success of "A Wayne in a Manger", Gervase Phinn has collected together from his bestselling "Dales" books his favourite stories about children, and included some poems from his popular Puffin poetry books. In this humorously illustrated book, the stories have one thing in common - the wonderfully funny (and usually innocent) things that children say. What makes Naomi's granny wobble? What's the secret ingredient in Richard's jam tarts? What is Billy's unconventional method for making babies? Whether they are stories about children who cannot read very well but know the names of many breeds of sheep or children who are more privileged (coming to school in a Wolls-Woyce), they are simply delightful. "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars" is a heart-warming book will enchant you, as Gervase Phinn helps you look at life through a child's eyes - and that's quite a special thing. "Gervase Phinn's memoirs have made him a hero in school staff-rooms". ("Daily Telegraph"). Gervase Phinn is an author and educator from Rotherham who, after teaching for fourteen years in a variety of schools, moved to North Yorkshire to be a school inspector. He has written autobiographies, novels, plays, collections of poetry and stories, as well as a number of books about education. He holds five fellowships, honorary doctorates from Hull, Leicester and Sheffield Hallam universities, and is a patron of a number of children's charities and organizations. He is married with four adult children. His books include "The Other Side of the Dale", "Over Hill and Dale", "Head Over Heels in the Dales", "The Heart of the Dales", "Up and Down in the Dales" and "Trouble at the Little Village School".
