I get the impression the cover illustrator read the relevant chapter, but may not have been a committed Chalet fan. We've not had brown and flame as the uniform for about five years. Don't dwell on the cover - go straight to the opening scene, Copper and her stepfather on the train, which is one of EBD's best starts ever.

In the last book, 'Jane', Va wrote a play in which a 'missing' character was identified by her long fair hair. This incredible stretch of the imagination may have been what insp...more

Firstly, I think, I have to clarify the five star rating of this book. When it comes to Redheads, it is necessary to rate it on a wholly different level to the rest of the series. Whilst it's nowhere near the stunning The Chalet School in Exile in terms of quality, where Redheads scores high is on all round (and splendidly silly) amazingness.

This is an amazing book and it's one that sort of defies 'normal' critique. It's the one where Brent-Dyer decided to write about criminal gangs, nefarious p...more

I only read this book as an adult and enjoyed it. I think in some ways I would have got more out of it as a child because as an adult I can just see that this is Elinor's attempt to dramatise her books a bit more. The early books in the chalet series have drama and adventure but it is always fun and relevant. This book feels like she wanted to write a mystery book and slot it into her chalet series. I still really enjoyed it and recommend it but am very glad it comes later in the series so reade...more
One of the more exciting books in the Chalet School series. Flavia is sent to school to escape a criminal who wants revenge on her. A gripping climax after an enjoyable book, rather different from most in the series.
Flavia, whose father is a police inspector, is sent to the Chalet School to keep her safe from his enemies. Does this work? Of course not!
Good book for a bus it was even slightly exicting
