Ann (no, it's not short for anything)
Newcastle upon Tyne, although originally from Coventry
Al (also know on his occasional visits here as Emperor Zhark) / none / none / none
Favourite and least favourite books and characters:
Favourite character is definitely Bride Bettany, although Margia Stevens is a close runner up, and favourite books are Highland Twins
and Bride Leads
. Least favourite books and character... well, Nina Rutherford does nothing for me so Genius/Fete
don't impress me much.
How you got into the Chalet School:
At the age of 12, having read everything else in our local branch library, I picked up Exploits
and the rest, as they say, is history. 'Grew out' of them as a teenager, gave my books to my sister who gave them to a charity shop (I've never been able to replace that copy of Two Sams
) and then rediscovered them at a second-hand bookshop in Haworth in 2003 when I picked up a copy of Jo Returns
and realised I'd never read it.
I'm a school librarian and Guiding has taken over my life
