The formula for a Blyton school story is pretty standard ... a new pupil (or pupils) commences at an institute of learning and there's a 'settling in' period. At least one nasty student makes his or her presence felt as does a class clown or player-of-tricks, a Brain-of-Britain, and a dunce. There's usually a Matron who's been there forever, a French teacher who is 'very' French and a very wise Head (or Heads). There has to be at least one midnight feast and a sports tournament although the latter doesn't occur in this book but that’s not surprising because there's not enough room in the ninety or so pages.

Enter Mike and Janet Fairley. They don't want to go to boarding school but they have no choice so after voting to make the St. Rollo's students 'sit up a bit' they're sent away to muck-in as best they can.

Author Bio for Blyton, Enid

Author Image

Enid Blyton (1897-1968) was a prolific English author of children's books. Born in London, she began writing while still in school. Her first attempts at writing were rejected by publishers which just made her more determined to succeed. She trained as a teacher and in her spare time continued to write. Her first book, a collection of poems, was published in 1922. Her first series of books, "Old Thatch", began in 1934 and eventually encompassed 28 books. In the 1940's she began to churn out books sometimes three or four per year. By the 1950's she was publishing upwards of 50 books per year. In all, she wrote over 750 books which sold over 600 million copies. While critics called her writing unimaginative and lacking literary merit, this did not stop her adoring fans from scooping her books off the shelf. Even after her death, her endearing stories continue to draw the rapt attention of children everywhere. (Enid Blyton Society)
