Review: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Gervase Phinn

I spent many of my teenage years reading James Herriot’s books, and I found that this collection of anecdotes and poems by Gervase Phinn had a real flavour of Herriot about it.

Here he collates stories from his other books, some Christmassy and others not, and he relates them with several of his own poems interspersed between.
