    The last of the white spined Armada paperbacks, so a bit of a milestone in my re read And at least the girls on the cover are in blue The first time I read it, the previous book was unavailable, so the apparent disappearance of Claire from the Freudesheim nursery went unnoticed but even this time, I m left wondering when exactly Phil became so ill with polio Challenge is a actually quite a complicated Chalet, as there are several plots going on simultaneously, and each of those splits up into further, inter crossing plots It s probably best illustrated by Venn diagrams or something but my html isn t up to that so here s the description Staffroom changes plot Miss Annersley is away for the term, so Miss Wilmot takes over as head So we have the inexperienced head thing going on as Miss Wilmot learns how to do her new job Miss Ferrars is then taken ill, so Dr Benson comes in to teach new teacher , difficult junior , difficult senior all intersect here , and the prefects are given the job of producing the nativity play difficult junior and difficult senior intersect here, and not just at the end when, as you d expect, they are struck by the message of the story and turn into new people Difficult senior plot Evelyn, whose mother is being treated at the Sanatorium, is mighty miffed to find herself at school This results in an all hate the new girl plot intersects with inexperienced head , a new best friend plot sadly di...

    It s such a shame EBD didn t write this book 20 years earlier than she did The concept of longstanding, superb headmistress goes away for a term and leaves younger, less experienced colleague in charge is actually a really, really good one, and EBD in her prime would have handled it superbly Unfortunately, she wrote this in her decli...

    This is 55 in the original series, 59 in the Armada version, which I have and which, along with a few others, has not been cut in any way It starts with Miss Annersley explaining that she s going to be away for a term but that thread isn t really explored Instead the book focuses on two rather different new girls, neither of whom want to be at the school I loved Summer Term which immediately precedes this, but thought this one was rather run of the mill, with far too much detail about day to day Chalet School life It s not a book I d recommend as a starting point to the series in fact I wouldn t really recommend it to anyone other than fans who are reading through all the books Nevertheless, it s a chapter in the lives of people I find myself caring about Elinor M Brent Dyer had a tremendous gift of ch...

    Not as thin as some of the later books, but mainly because of the way EBD shoved plot point after plot point in there a shame, because the narrative could have done some really interesting things if given room to breathe.An OK instalment trope tastic
