Mam'zelle beamed. 'You will like little Claudine! For she is French. She is my niece!'
But Mam'zelle is in for a shock! Out to break every school rule, new girl Claudine is no teacher's pet...
There's more trouble at St Clare's
The sixth book in the St Clare's series is nothing new. In fact it's exactly the same as the rest of Enid Blyton's books but with a different set of characters. Saying that, I still found the story engagingand didn't see some of the plot twists coming - in a kid's book! I normally see plot twists a mile off, but Enid Blyton got me good.
There's nothing extraordinary about the characters. They're a bunch of middle class teens with the occasional token poor girl and a snob who hates the poor girl. Some of the girls aren't very nice people but by the end of the book they've learnt their lessons and are having a wonderful time.
It's another quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Enid Blyton was one of my favourite childhood authors and I still love to read her books today.
My Rating3 stars - A lovely read that fills your heart with joy and a sense of how jolly nice the world used to be. It's not a groundbreaking piece of literature but it was still good enough to keep me entertained.
