This book is very hard to come by, and I was very pleased when it became available for purchase. It arrived in good condition, and within a short period of time...and I was so excited to be able to fill in the gaps of the story that had, to date, been unavailable for reading. Reading this series of books has spanned over 30 years for me, and now my kids are enthusiastically reading and enjoying all the antics of the Chalet school girls. While other school stories of this era were avoiding all mention of the terrible War, this book "jumped in boots and all" and made the lives of these characters come to life as the real events of the world and the fictional lives of these characters were intertwined. A great read!

The Chalet School at Wat is my favourite book in the Chalet School series. The plot is really interesting and the characters seem to come alive while the Second World War changes the lives of everyone in the school. I think this book is not only a pleasant reading but it is also very informative. Its filled with historical information about how people lived during the war,in the years of blackouts and rationing. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys school stories or historical fiction. Even though it says in the amazon.com page that this book is aimed for children from 4-8 I think its rather wrong, I think this book is for kids 12 and up, but if parents wish to read it for the younger ones they will enjoy.

This book is not just a great part of the chalet school series it is also great for educational purposes. Historical facts are spot on and still very valuable to the new generation.
Not to be missed - an essential edition to any Chalet School collection.
