More lessons and life from the Yorkshire Dales...
All Teachers Bright and Beautiful is the concluding volume in Andy Seed's trilogy. As always, the book is peppered with the hilarious and heart-warming incidents that a life living and working with children inevitably contains. Andy Seed is sure to charm fans of Jack Sheffield and Gervase Phinn.
Andy Seed is beginning his fifth year teaching at Cragthwaite Primary in the Yorkshire Dales, and as always a new term is full of surprises.
These take the form of a beautiful, but not terribly bright, student on placement from the local teacher training college, and a particularly pushy and problematic parent with a fine line in complaining. It looks like Andy's pupils are the least of his problems...
At home in Applesett, things aren't all rosy either. Barbara is forced to take a job as a postie to help pay the mortgage, which means finding someone to look after Tom and Reuben. When two old friends move into the village it looks like the problem has been solved, but it soon transpires that rural life is not for everyone...

Andy Seed worked for many years as a primary school teacher in the Yorkshire Dales before setting up as a freelance writer in 2000. He now splits his work time between writing and travelling around schools running workshops and enthusing children about books and reading, as well as giving talks about his days as a young teacher in the Dales. Andy is married with three children and lives in the wilds of North Yorkshire where he finds inspiration while battling against the overgrowth of his vast, rambling garden.
