Ladies control yourselves but this is the book in which Hot Roger makes his debut Oh we all know Reg is the official hottie in the Chalet School series Joey's first born does after all memorably swoon into his arms but Roger? If ever a book involved a swoonsome debut of a new hero to be this is that book and Roger is that chap After all he prances around the Tiernsee in next to nothing has some particularly flirtatious moments with all the laydeezhey Roger let's swim and then afterwards I'll check out your scar and it's all in all a bit specialOh yes apparently a story also happens I was pleased when I added this one to my collection the 'holiday' Chalets were the last ones Armada published and I'd already met Ruey in the next book which refers back to this one I remember not liking the start very much Joey is downright rude to Madge and I still feel that way I also just skipped through the description of the salt mines in Hall as I've never been keen on the tourist board sections of the books And one day I will sit down with pen and paper and work out Ruey's family tree because Daisy's explanation of the relationship between her husband and the Richardsons is just too hard to follow I think she's saying that Laurie's grandmother was Ruey's great grandmother There are also a couple of loose ends the two ruffians near the cave above the Sonnalpe and Ruey's large package from Kenya are never explained these might be the result of cuts for the paperback although I thought Armada published the last few in fullBut these things aside it's OK It's lovely to be back at the Tiernsee Joey and Jack have stopped referring to their children as 'the brats' perhaps somebody had a uiet Word with EBD and the adventures are reasonably plausible It's not a book that sparkles but it's not the worst Really not one I would read again Boarding school stories that are not actually set IN the school are just not as fun even if this one was dealing with several pupils ie the triplets and one future pupil Ruey It seemed like it would have been a better read had it been condensed into about half its length and then had the second half actually be at the school with Ruey Lovely setting though; I felt all happy each time they mentioned InnsbruckOkay and I can't NOT mention this because it made me laugh so hard One for the list of Things Which Sounded Okay At The Time Of Writing But Are Now Much Less Innocent to set the scene Roddy is trimming a tree branch down to use as a splint for Roger's leg Roddy held out his wood now reduced to a manageable size This book features Joey Maynard and some of her family on holiday in their new chalet in the Austrian Tirol They get to know the three Richardsons Roger Ruey and Roddy who are staying in a small chalet nearby mostly without any adult presentInevitably there’s much that’s old fashioned and I rolled my eyes a little at some of the author’s oft repeated phrases and values But there’s a lot of warmth too Jo and her husband Jack are relaxed parents who expect a lot of their children but they treat them with respect tooI enjoyed this book very much reading it for the first time in probably twenty years Recommended to anyone who enjoys the series; it makes a change from Brent Dyer's school based books Joey and her family are back in the Tirol for the holidays One day her triplets get involved in an accident with another family the Richardsons After this Joey takes them under her wing when she discovers that the Richardsons are motherless and their father is a very absent minded guy who always goes off on trips as he is an astronomerThe three R's Roger Ruey and Roddy make their home with the Manyards and join in all the fun that always seems to happen whenever Joey is around A rare find This book starts with Joey Maynard being sent away for a holiday It goes on to adventure escapades the criminal element and space travel We meet the Richardsons who are so important later in the series and learn a lot about the Maynard boys than in any other books Loved this book so much I missed the school a bit but this is almost a throw back to the earliest books with so much intrigue and adventure Joey takes her incredibly large family on holiday to their new holiday chalet in Tirol They promptly end up adopting three children whose father is so benignly neglectful that he plans to leave them to live on their own while he heads into space what? The most fanciful of all my parent abandoned me plot lines Rather overly long sections of this book are devoted to either discussing packing or cleaning and packing up a house and it's not set at the school not my favourite book One of the better later stories in which the ensemble read like actual characters rather than one dimensional plot points I know many don't like this chalet school book but I do Anything at the Tiernsee is great
