What colour are Miss Annersley’s eyes? Are they grey, blue, blue-grey, grey-blue, or are they perhaps brown? Who is Elsa Behrens and why is she not in the play? How many languages does Miss Denny speak, and does she teach any other subjects? Is Bride Bettany’s hair curly or straight? Are the Carter twins identical? Find answers to these questions and many, many more in Volume One of the new Chalet School Encyclopaedia. This mammoth compilation is the work of Alison McCallum, who spent many years scouring the series for all identifiable facts about characters well-known or obscure, heroines and hangers-on. Lovers of Elinor Brent-Dyer’s Chalet world will know what that means in terms of dedication and perseverance. The facts thus uncovered have been checked and triple-checked by an army of Chalet afficionadas, and the result is a truly fascinating resource. Read it, dip into it, look things up and jot things down, search out your favourite facts and discover new ones. Not to be missed!
