Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. In his many years as a teacher and School Inspector in the Yorkshire Dales, Gervase Phinn has amassed a wealth of hilarious anecdotes about teachers, pupils, and parents. The Christmas Nativity Play is a rich source of humour, what with kings eating the sweets decorating their crowns, and Mary shouting at an enthusiastic drummer to ‘shurrup Darren! I’m trying to gerrim off to sleep!’ Amid the Christmas anecdotes are poems and other tales displaying that characteristically dry Yorkshire sense of humour.
~ Fiona Lafferty

Synopsis
