    Fairacre is a village of cottages, a church and the school, and at the heart of the school, its head mistress, Miss Read. Through her discerning eye, we meet the villagers of Fairacre and see their trials and tribulations, from the irascible school cleaner Mrs. Pringle, to the young school children, with their scraped knees, hopeful faces, and inevitable mischief.

    Would you listen to Village School again? Why?

    I have read all Miss Read's books, including Village School, more than once. I will definitely revisit the Audible version several times during the coming years.

    My favourite character is Miss Read, because of her sense of humour, her practical take on life, and her love and tolerance for people of all walks of life.

    The Sunday School-outing to the seaside is my favourite scene.The fun and tribulations of all the loveable characters during this trip are highly enjoyable.


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

    I immensely enjoyed listening to narration of Carole Boyd. She is able to bring all the characters to life. The book's makes me smile and gives me a warm nostalgic feeling.


    Any additional comments?

    Miss Read has been one of my favourite authors for many decades. To be able to listen to the Audible versions of her books is a great treat for me.
