The debut of Enid Blyton’s St Clares series is not as strong as the debut of the Mallory Towers series, as many of the founding characters do not make it all the way through to the end of the series and so they become forgettable. It does however contain the usual amount of tricks, dormy fun and lacrosse matches one has come to expect with an Enid Blyton series set in a school.
The O’Sullivan twins are Pat and Isabel, one quite indistinguishable from the other with the exception of Pat’s tendency to be more stubborn than her twin. They are not happy with being sent away to St Clares as they have their hearts set on going to Redroofs with some of their friends. Their father informs them that they have become too big for their boots and St Clares will do them good.
Unfortunately once they arrive, their reluctance to join in with any of the other girls’ activities and Pat’s refusal to wait on the older girls, such is the custom at St Clares, soon earns them the nickname “The Stuck-Up Twins”. Only through displays of their sense of fair play and honesty do the twins eventually make friends and settle into their school.
‘The Twins at St Clares’ is a solid start to the series though not one I find myself looking forward to re-reading like I do some of the later books.
