1968 Armada Elisaveta lifted her head from the bed. 'Oh, is the thunderstorm over?' she gasped. The silence continued some seconds and was far more horrifying than the storm noises had been.
The door opened showing the Head, white-faced. She came into the room, and just as she reached the bed a frightful red glare flared in the sky, there was a dull shrieking noise - and then a ball of crimson light flashed past the window followed by an awful crash....

1988 Chambers Hardback Another term, and the arrival of a European princess adds an extra touch of the exotic to the Chalet School. The need to make Princess Elisaveta of Belsornia feel welcome brings out the best in Joey Bettany, but she never dreamed that she would have to save the life of her royal chum.
A less welcome arrival is the new matron, who quickly becomes thoroughly unpopular with pupils and teachers alike. She will not last for long at the Chalet School ...
Joey has to be at her most resourceful to save her friend from the dastardly Prince Cosimo: her brave deeds make for compelling reading in the kidnap drama which climaxes The Princess of the Chalet School.
