Everyone is mystified by the strange Verity-Ann. She keeps herself to herself, and not even Mary-Lou, who’s a new girl too, can understand her. Luckily for everyone involved, the solution to the problem turns up in the end!
Mary-Lou Trelawney does not want to go to school. She has always had her lessons at home and, besides, she doesn’t like girls! Verity-Ann Carey, a child who has spent all her time with elderly grown-ups, doesn’t approve of modern schoolgirls and is determined not to alter her prim old-maid ways.
But Clem Barras can hardly wait to give up her wild travelling life and join in the boisterous fun of her classmates. When the three meet – there’s trouble ahead!

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.From the Back Cover:
