Product Description

Miss Read is certain of one thing-she won't be forced to hire grumpy Mrs. Pringle to straighten up her house. Mrs. Pringle of Fairacre chronicles the life of the beloved but curmudgeonly school cleaner through the stories of her fellow villagers. Readers will delight in the quirks of this favorite character, from the "flare-ups" of her bad leg to her possessive fondness for the school's two coal stoves. Her neighbors also remember Maud Pringle's little-known benevolence, like the time she knitted mittens for poor Joe Coggs. The downland village of Fairacre bustles with familiar characters, who all have stories to share about the town's (and readers) favorite grouch. 166 pages. Soft cover.

Publisher's Description

Through the eyes of many Fairacre friends, we trace Mrs. Pringle’s life and her stormy standing as the redoubtable cleaner of the town’s school. However maddening she is, life at Fairacre would be poorer without her.

Author Bio

Miss Read (1913-2012) was the pseudonym of Mrs. Dora Saint, a former schoolteacher beloved for her novels of English rural life, especially those set in the fictional villages of Thrush Green and Fairacre. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955, and Miss Read continued to write until her retirement in 1996. In the 1998, she was awarded an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, for her services to literature.

    All of Miss Read's series are so good. You become part of the story as you are reading. I know I hated to have the story end but it was so nice to know that there was another segment to pick up and enter back into Fairacre. No one will be disappointed with this series.
