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.

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.
