    A refreshing return to the font for school story enthusiasts The Twins are delightfully keen except of course in French The headmistress Miss Theobald a model of good sense and firmness tempered with compassion.

    I didn t enjoy this instalment from the St Clare s series as much First of all, there wasn t enough Pat and Isabel in it for my liking Maybe it because I don t particularly remember the stories from my childhood and also the German title ingrained in my brain Hanni and Nanni makes me believe it should beabout the twins.Instead, we spent most of the summer term, again, learning about the new girls in the form which is okay and necessary but Prudence is and awful character and Sadie do I didn t enjoy this instalment from the St Clare s series as much First of all, there wasn t enough Pat and Isabel in it for my liking Maybe it because I don t particularly remember the stories from my childhood and also the German title ingrained in my brain Hanni and Nanni makes me believe it should beabout the twins.Instead, we spent most of the summer term, again, learning about the new girls in the form which is okay and necessary but Prudence is and awful character and Sadie doesn t add much to anything I liked Carlotta and was pleasantly surprised that her circus only endeared herto the other girls.Meanwhile Prudence was a real ugly character and there was nothing redeeming about her at all I prefer the characters, like Bobby, who are bold but honest an stand up They may make mistakes but aren t above learning to better themselves Sometimes, they need a push or shove in the right direction but they then make it to the end on their own I also missed Lucy and Margery I really liked Margery last term and was a bit sad to see her go up and leave the first form though of course it was good for her.One thing I do not understand is why Pam isn t going up into second form despite her good schoolwork She stays in first form So she will learn everything again It confuses me.Also, there wasn t going on my beyond the bullying from Prudence and some secret revealing and trick playing I missed the fun times between all the girls.There was one thing that rubbed me a bit the wrong way, when Carlotta is told to belike the others I don t particularly like that these girls are all supposed to be so alike Maybe I took it the wrong way but it just stuck out at me as something odd All in all, this was my least favourite from the first form books

    I read school stories because, as a rule, the authors encourage girls to strive for themselves and be very active in different things school clubs, sports, etc The problem with this book, which wasn t so prevalent in the first one, is that the plot doesn t revolve around a mystery, or who s going to a win a competition, or whether a pupil s piece is good enough for the school s journal Each chapter has a new prank played on one of the teachers and there s a lot of bullying going on in one I read school stories because, as a rule, the authors encourage girls to strive for themselves and be very active in different things school clubs, sports, etc The problem with this book, which wasn t so prevalent in the first one, is that the plot doesn t revolve around a mystery, or who s going to a win a competition, or whether a pupil s piece is good enough for the school s journal Each chapter has a new prank played on one of the teachers and there s a lot of bullying going on in one scene, one of the girls almost drowns and at first she s teased solely because she s a good student I really abbhor this kind of attitude and it seems Enid Blyton encouraged it, often having one of the teachers comment on a good student that she should laughTo each their own, Enid, to each their own Some students like studying and the sort of pranks your characters play don t appeal to everyone Also, my primary reason for adoring boarding school stories in particular is that a lot can happen outside of class sadly, nothing much happens here until the end, which is a real shame as I think girls living together is an ideal way for friendships to blossom in unusual circumstances I missed the description of tuck boxes and food in this too, there weren t that many This was a frustrating book but I loved the setting too much to give it less than three stars

    Blyton goes noir After a gentle start to the series, she brings out the big gun bullying here, with Prudence against poor Pam, and a rather bizarre kidnap attempt on the rich American girl, Sadie I have to say, I thought I d read all the books, but I have no memory of this, other than Carlotta and Bobby, who are also quite prominent in the follow up, so maybe I missed this one out My daughter s still enjoying them I fear we may have to read all eight before I get to introduce her to The H Blyton goes noir After a gentle start to the series, she brings out the big gun bullying here, with Prudence against poor Pam, and a rather bizarre kidnap attempt on the rich American girl, Sadie I have to say, I thought I d read all the books, but I have no memory of this, other than Carlotta and Bobby, who are also quite prominent in the follow up, so maybe I missed this one out My daughter s still enjoying them I fear we may have to read all eight before I get to introduce her to The Hobbit or before she decides she is too old for bedtime stories NOOOOO but she kept wondering why the O Sullivan twins weren t in it as much As did I their Irish accent is one of the most fun things about reading the books aloud, and I m running out of variations on English accents for all the new characters


  9. Limau Nipis Limau Nipis says:

    Aah, after three books that Enid Blyton decided to conclude the first former series I am fond of the twins, Pat and Isabel, but the focus has somehow shifted to their circles of friends.I love the addition of new characters and particularly love Bobby and Carlotta As for Prudence, I shuddered on why she is so sneaky and keep telling tales Yes, I know that not all the girls are good, but some characters were painted as so sneaky that I feel uncomfortable reading about Prudence s mischief.Well, Aah, after three books that Enid Blyton decided to conclude the first former series I am fond of the twins, Pat and Isabel, but the focus has somehow shifted to their circles of friends.I love the addition of new characters and particularly love Bobby and Carlotta As for Prudence, I shuddered on why she is so sneaky and keep telling tales Yes, I know that not all the girls are good, but some characters were painted as so sneaky that I feel uncomfortable reading about Prudence s mischief.Well, I am going to continue reading the 4th book and try to remember why I enjoyed the series so much in my younger days

    Introducing don t care Bobby and Carlotta And Sadie, for Alison to fawn over I didn t own this one growing up, only bought it fairly recently to complete my collection I m not sure if I never bought it because it wasn t a favourite, or it wasn t a favourite because I didn t have it to read over and over The whole kidnapping subplot just never did it for me though I prefer boarding school adventures when they re actually inside the school.
