All things bookish!

The Back of the Book:  From its small beginnings, the Chalet School grows to be one of the most famous girls’ schools in the world.  There’s no end of excitement and adventure and it’s every girl’s dream to be a pupil there.

The Chalet School now boasts over thirty pupils – including the enchanting Robin.  The autumn term sees adventures of all kinds – a flood that threatens the school and the dramatic rescue of an unwanted St Bernard puppy.  Finally, Joey, Madge and the Robin spend a delightful Christmas in Innsbruck and term ends with happiness of a very special kind of Madame Bettany.

NotJustLaura’s Review:  I’m really enjoying venturing back into the world of the Chalet School.  In this book, I found the characters’ attitudes less dated than in the first – although Madge seeks advice from others when required, we don’t hear her saying ‘Oh dear, I need a man‘s help …’  Perhaps she has grown up after all her adventures?  I’m greatly looking forward to reading the next instalment anyway!
