Summary

The second book in the delightful Barton-In-The-Dale series which began with The Little Village School.

Elisabeth Devine certainly rocked the boat when she arrived in Barton-in-the-Dale to take over as head teacher of the little primary school. Now it's a new term, and after winning over the wary locals, she can finally settle in to her role. Or so she thinks... For the school is hit by a brand-new bombshell: it's to be merged with its arch rival, and Elisabeth has to fight for the headship with Urebank's ruthless and calculating headmaster.

She has her work cut out for her. But add in some gossip and a helping of scandal, not to mention various newcomers bringing good things and bad to Barton, and that's not the only trouble that's brewing in the village.

laugh out loud funny

Would you consider the audio edition of Trouble at the Little Village School to be better than the print version?

I love the books and audio edition but I enjoy drifting of to sleep with a really good book being read to me

What was one of the most memorable moments of Trouble at the Little Village School?

The funniest part for me is Chardony telling the talr of her sister giving birth i have to listen to it at least once a day

What about Gervase Phinn’s performance did you like?

He draws you into the story you feel you are part of the tale and can picture everyone he talks about

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

when Elizabeth goes to see her son and talks to him telling him she wouldn't change him for a normal child, whatever normal is I had a good cry at that,

Any additional comments?

I cant get enough of his books and am desperate to go and see him in person
