    • The cover picture is OK but where is the crimson honeycombing at the waist and shoulders? And the touches of white on the revers? I mean, I've no idea what any of that means, but it's described very clearly and it's completely absent from those all-blue dresses in the picture. Golden opportunity to show us what EBD's on about, totally missed.Oh, yes, the book. It's entirely devoted to the ghastly Maynard triplets. So a good book for those who don't think they are ghastly, but not much fun for th [...]

    • It's the one where, well, things happen? You know, that thing? And the other one? And that other onezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry where was I? Ah yes, I was recounting the tales of the Chalet School Triplets, immortalised forever in their distinctly sack-like blue dresses. This is the book where they do things, one 'thing' per triplet, and highjinks ensue and everything ends welllzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz That's this book. There are moments in it, such as the Margot Moment which is BON [...]

    • To be honest, this isn't my favourite. I've never felt that Len, Con and Margot are particularly compelling characters, so a whole book focused on them has never really been destined to make my top five. However, there's more than enough of the Chalet School I find so charming in here - I found the interaction of the teachers particularly interesting, and there's a lot of Joey (always a plus!) It's still a good read, was well worth the cost of getting it posted to me, and would be perfect for fa [...]

    • A fun chalet book focusing on adventures and misadventures of the triplets. This is an enjoyable book but I am disappointed that Margot has yet another set back moment. I enjoy her progression but wanted to see ongoing improvement not great leaps back. Otherwise some reminiscences and some fun stories and adventures!

    • The cover-art on this one is just dreadful, I'm sorry! And yes I am shallow and judge both books and schoolgirls by their appearances ;) I was never a huge fan of the triplets anyway. Bride Bettany and co. were my favourites.

    • This one was my Christmas present! One of the handful I've never read, so that was pretty exciting. It's prone to the usual EBD flaws, but generally enjoyable, and doesn't have the classic "new girl comes to school" plotline either. Huzzah.

    • Proper review later. Am I the only one who still thinks Margot Maynard got off MUCH too lightly for what she did? If I'd been the other girl's parents!

    • As advertised, it's all about the Maynard triplets, with a large amount of ludicrous adventures (shoplifting! Baby theft! Blizzards!). There is also an insane incident where Margot gets into a temper, and throws a heavy bookend at another girl, hitting her in the head hard enough to knock her unconscious. Margot is actually sort-of threatened with expulsion by the Head (in a "well if you ever brutally attack anyone ever again" way), but then when the other girl rouses from her stupor she "confes [...]

    • This story, 49th in the original editions, is one of the better ones, in my view. Len, Con and Margot Maynard are now sixteen. The book is about them primarily, in the context of a term that's filled with dramatic situations, mostly featuring one or more of the triplets. Each incident makes interesting reading, and I liked seeing the different characters of the three. They’re realistically flawed; but all, in their different ways, likeable. Perhaps there is too much drama for one term; chapter [...]
