Next on my list of nostalgia book reads from childhood were the girls boarding school books! As a primary school kid I was fascinated by the tales of girls of various ages going off to a variety of boarding schools and having midnight feasts! I'm sure the reality of boarding school was different but I so much wanted to go to them!
Enid Blyton-The Naughtiest Girl
I'm just finding out now that there seems to be about ten of them. I feel cheated! I never knew! This was the actual cover for the copy I had then. Doesn't she look charming!
Staying with Enid Blyton, The Queen of British boarding schools, I was also a big fan of two others that she wrote-Malory Towers at St Clares. Malory Towers was my favourite of the two as I could relate to the bad tempered Darrell and loved the tricks the girls played on their poor French teacher!
The other one that I really enjoyed were the books set at Trebizon. I loved Rebecca, Tish and Sue but I don't remember if I read the whole series or not.
Did you ever read any boarding school books when you were a kid or returned to them years later to see if you still enjoyed them?
