The Chalet School is a series of approximately sixty school story novels by Elinor Brent-Dyer, initially published between 1925 and 1970.
The school was initially located in Austria, moved to Guernsey in 1939, following the rise to power of the Nazi Party, then to "Plas Howell", a house on the border of England and Wales, then to St Briavels, close to the English - Welsh border and finally to Switzerland.
Chalet School books were originally published in hardback between 1925 and 1970. The novels were reissued in paperback format between 1967 and 1995. Usually with updated language. Some were more or less uncut, but many others were abridged to various extents, including chapters deleted from some titles. A few were split into two paperback volumes, and several were retitled.
Several authors have written books about the Chalet School. Some of them follow on from the last book of the series, and others attempt to fill in some of the "gaps" in the earlier years of the school. All books are published by Girls Gone By Publishers (formerly Friends of the Chalet School).
The Wrong Chalet School was first published by W. & R. Chambers, Ltd, in 1952 and it is No. 24 in the Chalet School Series.
"An art-obsessed aunt as guardian may complicate matters, especially when it comes to choosing boarding-school, as Katharine Mary Gordon discovered when Aunt Luce handed her over to the wrong Chalet School where Mary Katharine Gordon was expected, but did not turn up.
Not that Katharine minded, for the girls were friendly, the Staff keen, but reasonable, and what with tennis, Guides, a seashore camp and a water pageant, she enjoyed the school; and when the news came that her missing parents had escaped safely from Communist China, she had little else to ask of life."
