A delightful anthology with stories taken from Phinn's books about his teaching in the Dales but also some of his poems from his popular poetry books for kids. We all know kids can say the funniest things and here Gervase Phinn captures some classics to bring a smile to the most hardened of faces!

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Stars Synopsis

Following on from the terrific success of A Wayne in a Manger, Gervase Phinn has collected together from his bestselling Dales books his favourite stories about children, and included some poems from his popular Puffin poetry books. In this humorously illustrated book, the stories have one thing in common – the wonderfully funny (and usually innocent) things that children say. Whether they are stories about children who cannot read very well but know the names of many breeds of sheep or children who are more privileged (coming to school in a Wolls-Woyce), they are simply delightful. This heart-warming book will not only enchant you, it will make you look at life through a child’s eyes – and that’s quite a special thing.
