The Virgin Mary's Got Nits A Christmas Anthology

by Gervase Phinn

Humorous and Funny Books

The Virgin Mary's Got Nits A Christmas Anthology Synopsis

A touching and hilarious gift book of poetry and prose on the subject of children and Christmas from the Yorkshire school inspector and bestselling author of the Dales series and Little Village School series.

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.
