    1. This is good - really good, actually, even if the mystery of Prunella is much more interesting than its resolution - but I'm mostly using this review to take advantage of my EBD project. I'll call it "EBD Does It Again" because my sense of humor is as delightful and original as Brent-Dyer's books. (I do love these. Really. But I love making fun of them, too.)So here's an exhaustive, but by no means definitive, list of Chalet School pet phrases and repetitions. Essentially it's a record of all th [...]

    2. For many years my Chalet collection skipped straight from 'Barbara' to 'Mary-Lou', so I remember being particularly pleased when this one came out in paperback. It had the distinction of being the only Chalet book I had come across as being mentioned in another author's book (Antonia Forest: Nicola finds a copy in Oxfam); and it's one of those Chalets that keeps being referred to in subsequent books - Con's 'howler' about Daniel, the Willow Pattern sale, the arrival of Bruno, Miss O'Ryan's first [...]

    3. Featuring the Chalet School, now returned to the Oberland. Prunella is this term's oddity: a girl who refuses to use any kind of informal English, and won't even abbreviate people's names. Weather is bad so when the opportunity comes for a day out, the girls all take advantage of it, and high spirits ensue, nearly leading to tragedy. While some of this book is run-of-the-mill, including over-detailed descriptions of yet another sale and 'Welsen' pantomime, there were a couple of surprisingly mov [...]

    4. My first time reading this rare Chalet book. I really enjoyed so much of it, the introduction of Prunella, the exploration of friendships, appropriate behavior, changing fashions! Then comes the sale which is also fun and inspiring! However the panto based on the Chinese Willow Pattern story is a bit too true to the story and full of putting down comments about girls and their uselessness. Also some very racist comments (which I usually just try to gloss over due to the timing of the writing). I [...]

    5. The Chalet School has a new girl, Prunella Davidson. She's a mystery to them all, she speaks as if from a previous era, and refuses to call people by their nicknames. However, at times, it seems like it's all for show. What can be the reason behind it all?
