There are apparently new Malory Towers books in existence! By Pamela Cox, who did write those dreadful including-boys inserts into the St Clare’s series, but from what I can tell they feature Felicity (Felicity Rivers! Little Felicity!) and her year an awful lot (June! Susan!) as well as return appearances from those famous horsey spinsters *cough* Bill and Clarissa, and Gwen and Darrell and all the rest. This is the first of what seems to be six (six!) new adventures of the Malory Towers girls.
I’m torn, readers, I truly am. On the one hand – it’s not Blyton. On the other hand, it’s not that scary German version where Darrell ends up as Matron (at least I hope not). On the other other hand, it’s new Malory Towers stories, and I do adore Malory Towers beyond reason. So. Let’s see how terrible they turn out to be… or wonderful.
