The Chalet School Does It Again

£15.99

Product description

This is the 35th book in the renowned Chalet School series. This is the first edition, and is in good condition.

In this book staff and girls alike are bemused by one of the oddest new girls the school has ever had. Prunella Davidson "talks like her own great-granny", to quote Betsy Lucy. She is prim and prissy in the extreme, sprinkles her conversation with proverbs and insists on calling her fellow pupils by their full names, which leads to a serious row between her and one 'Helena' Maynard.

February brings a severe flu epidemic which affects around half the girls and but leaves only four fit mistresses to look after them. An expedition to Lake Lucerne nearly ends in tragedy. The annual Sale takes place this term and this time the theme is The Story Of The Willow Pattern. The Sale is followed by a pantomime, also based on the Willow Pattern, and written and performed by the girls at Welsen, the Chalet School's finishing branch. This book will be loved by former readers of the Chalet School series and anyone new to the series, as well as collectors. The book is missing its dust cover.
