Little wonder that the blurb for this book promises much mystery and adventure - even taking into account the amount of hijinks the Chalet girls experience on a regular basis, even this term would leave anybody breathless. Everything from merging with St Scholastika's, through to the pranks by The Mystic M (a mini-secret society set up by Maria and Mario Balbini, little Italian royal folk hellbent on taking revenge on Madge and Jo), and then a trip to Salzburg that's overcome by floods... it's a...more

Slightly confusingly, this is the first half of the original 'New Chalet School', published in paperback in the 1970s, with the second half being re-named 'The United Chalet School'.

A really thin book, so quick to finish. It was originally one book, but it got split into two (The New Chalet School and A United Chalet School).

The friendly rival school of St Scholastika's has been closed down, and quite a few of their girls have joined the Chalet School. It's tough for them in the beginning, but they eventually become fast friends.
