9780006903512: The Chalet School and the Island

St Briavel's Island -- what a wonderful new setting for the Chalet School! And how the girls enjoy exploring this beautiful island off the Welsh coast, with its wild cliffs and fascinating bird sanctuary. But Annis Lovell decides to run away -- and what trouble she gets into! When Jo Maynard presents the school with five boats, there is plenty of opportunity for hilarious escapades. But Annis, desperately unhappy, is unable to share the excitement. Feeling unwanted and unloved, she sets out alone on an adventure that nearly ends in disaster!

About the Author:

Elinor M. Brent-Dyer was born in South Shields in 1894, where she remained until she took her first job as an unqualified teacher while still a teenager. Her only trip abroad -- to the Austrian Tirol -- led to her writing The School at the Chalet in 1925. Because of its success, Elinor wrote a further 57 books in the series, along with newsletters and annuals, as her fans grew in number. At the same time she continued with her teaching, and ran her own school for ten years before retiring to live with friends until her death in 1969.
