Description - Over Hill and Dale by Gervase Phinn
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.
