5 out of 10

A memoir of Gervase Phinn's first year as County Inspector of Schools in North Yorkshire

The children he meets seem to be little adults, full of the language and prudence of their mostly land-worker parents; able to hold their own on the finer points of animal husbandry and farm management. 'Don't yer know yer sheep then? asks a serious little boy, aged six, whose reading aloud is perfect but whose interest is more in identifying the breed of sheep in the accompanying illustration, which leads to a serious classroom discussion

He meets head teachers, checks school curriculums, selects an unpopular winner in a poetry competition, and gains the confidence of the shyest and the most stubborn with diplomacy

He becomes much sought-after and admired by the county's matrons, but his heart is set a'flutter by a unmarried teacher with whom he longs to be more intimately acquainted
