Jolly, lighthearted but no surprises.
This is book 9 in the teacher series and have read each one since I was asked to review his first book by Tesco Book Club.
These books are Gervase Phinn meets James Herriot -light hearted and although the story continues the reader can pick up the books at anytime.
Great sense of humour which is likened to the books of Gervase Phinn a Yorkshire School Inspector. Love the nostalgia element of a by gone age - even although this is set just 30 years ago but how things have changed.
Glad to see Laura Beths sister was mentioned just once in the book - I found the relationship between Laura and Jack to be a little strange and never added to the stories.
A cliff hanger at the end, but not so as we know the next book Happiest Days (due for publication Jan 2017) is Jack's 10th year as headmaster. So no surprises.
Jolly and light hearted.
