This is the first novel in the beloved Fairacre Series. Village School introduces the remarkable schoolmistress and her lovable group of children, who with a mixture of skinned knees and smiles, are just as likely to lose themselves as their mittens. This is the English village of Fairacrre: a handful of thatch-roofed cottages, a church, the school, the promise of fair weather, friendly faces, and good cheer - at least most of the time. "An affectionate, humorous, and gently charming chronicle...sometimes funny, sometimes touching, always appealing." - The New York Times.
