Changes for the Chalet School (by Elinor M Brent-Dyer)


Yet another of Elinor M Brent-Dyer's prolific series about the Chalet School.

In this book, the School prepares to leave St Briavel's, where they have been for a while during the war, and return to the Oberland. There's not a lot of plot - it's very much a formulaic school story, but there's a bit of light relief when the girls visit the Cadbury factory in Birmingham, and have some trouble with pigs at night...

By the time I was half-way through I realised it had only been a year since I had read this book, but kept going anyway.

Not very exciting.

You can also read my somewhat longer review of 'Changes for the Chalet School' which I wrote after re-reading again, twelve years later.
