I am so pleased to be able to share with you two early submissions for the Girls’ Own Blog Carnival on Elinor M. Brent-Dyer. I will do another sweep of posts tomorrow (1st April) and post an update then. For now, please enjoy these amazing posts on Brent-Dyer and do leave a comment!
Bert of Make and Bake With Bert posts a gorgeous post on Chalet School holidays – focusing specifically on the location of Bosherston Lily Ponds. I adore this post; it’s amazing to actually see where Carola rescued Signa with the aid of Handy Local Doctor (a Chalet School trademark) and it’s also lovely to see how accurate Brent-Dyer was in describing an area.
Bert also made these gorgeous banners and images which I can’t help but fawn over each and every time I see them!
My second post that I’m so pleased to be able to share with you is from Ali at Fantastic Reads. She’s written a guest post before for me on the similarities between Eustacia and Eustace and I was thrilled to see another piece from her for the GO Blog Carnival. Her review of The New Mistress at the Chalet School is a beautiful discussion of the only book in the Chalet School series written from the new teachers’ perspective.
If either of these posts or the lovely banners have inspired you – it’s not too late to get involved! 🙂 Further info on the Carnival available here or tweet me.

I love Bert’s post. Bret-Dyer really did do her research. My parents went to the Oberammergau passion play a few years ago. My mum could gleefully recount all the parts she recognised from the description in the Chalet School books.
Oh I love that. That part in the books is beautifully done and so superbly solid. It’s true, EBD did do her research so excellently.
