The Tyrolean part of the Chalet School series remains a constant and beguiling delight to me There s something so obvious about Brent Dyer s love for the surroundings and her brand new school that I can t help but adore these early books.Elisaveta is our new girl for this term and she s a Princess She s a Princess of Belsornia and she s being sent to the Chalet School to improve her health And this always reminds me of I came for the Waters I was misinformed Naturally hijinks ensue but then thin [...]
The school parts are great, but they re weighed down by the our school is special enough to have a PRINCESS attending stuff It s too precious and it comes too soon into the series, like Brent Dyer needed a gimmick to prove how great the place is.I don t like gimmicks Also, on page 7 The doctor thought again There can never be any question of Princess Elisaveta succeeding to the throne Note that doesn t read like proper English to me None The Salic law holds good here I believe the Belsornians wo [...]
Another great story Great new characters of the princess and the matron Loved the section on talking louder and the snails Brilliance once again Can believe Madge is going What will happen next
Another very enjoyable read in this epic series, combining the far fetched with the warm and familiar The Princess is Elisaveta from the Imaginary state of Ruritania Her father, the Crown Prince, very enlightened for the time, send her off to boarding school note that her near namesake, born just before this book was published never went to school The book has a plot It s not a spoiler to say that Elisaveta is kidnapped by her father s evil cousin and, under Salic Law, heir presumptive , and Joe [...]
Easily one of the most dramatic books in a very dramatic series that includes mountain rescues, avalanches and escaping the Nazis , The Princess Of The Chalet School is an enjoyable if rather over the top read We meet a honest to goodness princess in the Chalet School universe Elisaveta of a fictional Belsornia and watch as she becomes a proper little schoolgirl in the Tiern See, even as her mad uncle Cosimo plots to improve his prospects in court.It s all quite outlandish, to be fair, albeit fa [...]
I know I m in a bit of a reading slump, which in my case means being difficult to please, but this really isn t good enough I like school stories that are about school, not impossible things This term sees Madge planning her wedding, and no one s happy about that The school has grown to thirty something students, among them a princess Yes, I know that royalty sends their kids to boarding schools That s not the point This justI dunno It doesn t work in any way for me Joey is again the main charac [...]
This is my favourite so far I m reading them in order , perhaps because I m getting used to its being an adventure series than a school series I also really enjoyed the plot, however predictable, and the use the girls make of their new survival wilderness skills learned while trying to get badges I don t want to spoil here, but the last adventure Joey has is a good example of that I feel that the whole Guiding aspect of the book was handled very badly, though, seeing as it was just dropped on [...]
This one attempt by EBD to introduce a princess to one of her schools provides for a very interesting if rather stereotypical Ruritanian storyline She augments it with the interesting concept of a bad staff member, in this case Matron, which, while it is an idea she repeats in the Chalet series later, is not one she tends to use in her other school series Matron, who is openly racist and encourages typical for the period strong arm tactics such as dragging girls along by brute force and locking [...]
First read this as a ten year old, loved it, and still love re reading it today I suspect that my parents saw in this, and the other Chalet School books, a fun way to learn good manners, to enjoying adventures in life, but not to do anything really stupid On the whole that worked.It was only in later years, as I grew into haunting second hand bookshops, that I discovered just how dire the writing was of so much 1920 s schoolgirl fiction, thus appreciated Elinor M Brent Dyer s talent for narrativ [...]
One of my favourite Chalet School books I love almost all of the ones I ve read Brent Dyer connects a number of plotlines Elisaveta, Matron, Madge and makes them very much part of one term there s no disjointed sense of this happened Then that happened Term ended that sometimes characterises school stories The Cosimo plotline doesn t have to be massively realistic the use of a fictional kingdom situates it firmly within the story, and so it works really effectively as an adventure.I did blink a [...]
I had never heard of the Chalet School books, or of the whole boarding school genre, while growing up I ve started reading this series now, as an adult, and I m really enjoying it The setting is so beautiful and the author obviously knows and loves it that I m, unexpectedly, enjoying even the parts in which nothing is happening except for the girls getting out of bed, brushing their hair, going to breakfast and having lessons That said, The Princess of the Chalet School is my favourite novel so [...]
An early Chalet School book, it is one of the most beloved in the series, but one of the least interesting, in my opinion Elizaveta escapes her wicked uncle, who is trying to usurp the throne of fictional kingdom Belsornia Too much emphasis on Elizaveta s rescue by the intrepid Jo, and not enough on character development In my opinion, the best books in the series deal with the adjustment to school life of a misfit girl, perhaps one who is lonely, arrogant, peculiar, etc One good example is _Eus [...]
The third book of the Chalet School series is probably the most overly dramatic of the first few books, at least A princess comes to the Chalet School, and with the help of Joey manages to evade the cruel intentions of her mad mad uncle, who wants the crown for himself There s a mountain climb naturally if these book are to be believed, you can t get anywhere in Austria without scaling a mountain , and everyone frets about Joey s health Again They all live happily ever after, and Joey gets given [...]
The very first one I read and I didn t like it My friend Jo had the entire series and lent me it not sure why this one and not the first I wasn t a huge fan, but later on I picked up Summer Term at the Chalet School to give the series another go, loved it, and the rest is history I of course read Princess again but still wasn t a huge fan.
One of my favourite books in this series Elisaveta, who is the Princess of Belsornia, has been sent to the Chalet School, to help her recovery from an illness The fact that she is a princess has been kept secret from her schoolmates, except for Joey Bettany.Her cousin, who would be heir to the throne after her father, the Crown Prince, kidnaps her from her school in order to force her father to give up his position as the Crown Prince Joey sets off to rescue her, and once again, saves the day
I REALLY enjoyed reading this lovely Girls Gone By edition of one of my favourite Chalet School books I could not even tell you how many times I have read Princess over the years, but what a lovely treat to read this beautiful uncut, unabridged version, after reading the Armada version so many times The front cover illustration is beautiful Also enjoyed the article by Adrianne Fitzpatrick on Matrons, Good Bad.
The third in the Chalet School series has Princess Elsaveta joining the school from Belsornia She integrates well but there is underhand work afoot in her home country.Dastardly Cosimo traces her to the school and then tries to abduct her but Joey Bettany is not to be trifled with and she goes to the rescue.In addition the headmistress, Joey s sister, gets married and when Cosimo is finally discovered at the bottom of a ravine, everybody lives happily ever after.Jolly good fun
This is book 3 in the Chalet Girl series This one focuses on the addition of a new pupil to the school a princess from a small nation This book explores some issues of class and complicated family relationships It also introduces Girl Guides and sees the end of the school being directly under the guidance of Madge Bettany A fun one and a book I enjoyed as a child than on my re read as an adult This time I found the bad guys a bit too annoying rather than scary
I really enjoy these books, except for the parts that are in another language is it French No idea that just is assumed you know what the heck they re saying I get the Koffee part, but everything else Totally lost The story itself isn t too dependent on that though, and moves along nicely Found my copy at my local op shop, and was a bit dismayed at the price 30.00 but they knocked it down to 10 for me, yay I d like to find of these books, but they re a bit hard to find.
This is the first of a collection of Chalet School books that I found in an Oxfam shop yesterday I was instantly transported back 20 years to when I first read some of them.In this one, we have a princess join the school, just as the head hires an unpleasant Matron There s plenty of drama in this book, and I was sorry when it ended Thank goodness I have to read
I loved it just as much as I loved it the first time that I read it Such a heartwarming book to read.

The third in the chalet school series which I am also reading in sequence Guess that is how it has to be read as there stories are chronologically placed as against Series like Bunter and Jennings which aren t This one had a exciting plot with a couple of strong conflicts one around a difficult matron and the other a political intrigue around a princess who joins the school The regular school setting in the scenic alps makes a fascinating read as usual There is a picnic to a nearby town where r [...]
I wanted about the princess transitioning into her new life She just seemed to adapt straight away But aside from that, it is a good read especially once the excitement of the kidnapping occurs.
I can still remember the feeling I got the first time I read Princess At this point I was fairly new to the CS, so I d read a couple of the much later stories Shocks, Barbara, Island , and then decided I ought to make the effort to read them in the right order So I came to Princess having read School and Jo And it was weird.Firstly, there seemed to have been a major uniform change, judging by the cover The smart tussore tops no, I had no idea and brown tunics had become blue dresses with pink ca [...]
