17 year old Annabel (Nan) Peters, has always longed to be a vet but she fails her General Certificate. The Head of her school contacts a friend of hers, Miss Frome, who runs the Assisi Kennels, and is in need of an assistant. Miss Frome agrees to take Nan on a six months trial, and gives her one warning - to always tell her the truth.. Miss Frome is kind but Averil Pearson, the senior assistant, is unfriendly and makes things difficult for Nan.
The description of duties of a kennelmaid at that time are completely accurate, and are born out by the introduction to our edition by Adrianne Fitzpatrick, which reveals how a young girl called Stella went to work at Michaelchurch Court (the known setting for Elinor’s Chalet books).
GGBP published Kennelmaid Nan on the 18th November 2011.
