First GGBP edition paperback of THE HIGHLAND TWINS AT THE CHALET SCHOOL - Chalet School No. 16 by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer and published by Girls Gone By Publishers, Somerset in 2003. It was first published in 1942. This complete and unabridged edition is now out of print.

The book is in near fine condition (clean illustrated covers and brown lettering on the front and black on the spine) with only minor shelf wear. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no inscriptions.

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 Highland Twins at the Chalet School was first published by Chambers, Ltd, in 1942 and it is No. 16 in the Chalet School series.

The Highland Twins at the Chalet School was published in 1942 and is one of the few books written during the War. Elinor M. Brent-Dyer did not write many books during this period as she also owned and ran the Margaret Roper school during this time.

It had been two years since she wrote Goes to It and it was another two years before she wrote Gay; the two books that come before and after Highland Twins. The book is badly cut and the abridged version no longer contained the chapters about Elisaveta’s escaped from Belsornia or Rosalie Dene's adventure in the dark, and many other little tidbits along the way.

It is certainly worth getting the unabridged version of Highland Twins. Highland twins was published six times in hardback and five times in paperback. GGBP last published the unabridged version in 2003

"The Chalet School in its long career, first in the Tyrol now in Wales, has had many strange people on its roll, but few have been as quaintly picturesque as Fiona and Flora McDonald, the 'Highland Twins'. More than that, excitement and mystery follow these newcomers from the Western Isles.

Jo still dominates the scene, on which, however, several old favourites reappear, including the 'Princess of the Chalet School'. Without a doubt this story is every bit as attractive and thrilling as its fifteen predecessors."

248 pages.
