Monitress Merle

£5.99

Product description

Dust jacket bumped on all edges but intact. Green cloth cover in very good condition. Spine tight, some slight foxing on page edges.

Angela Brazil was one of the first British writers of "modern schoolgirls' stories", written from the characters' point of view and intended primarily as entertainment rather than moral instruction. 'In this charming story is continued the tale of the adventures of that favourite pair, Mavis and Merle Ramsay. The scene is laid in Devonshire, and the school at which the energetic and lively Merle becomes monitress is The Moorings, under an up-to-date young headmistress. Merle is, on the whole, a great success in her important role, though she does not always keep out of mischief; Mavis grows very charming; little Clive, their cousin, provides plenty of amusement, and Bevis is their loyal comrade. A typical example of this highly popular author's power to tell a tale which schoolgirls love'.
