I'm interested to see that "Juniors" is available for "pre-order" on Amazon while Encyclopaedia 4 is not.

End of Term by Antonia Forest and The Chalet School and Jo are both due to be published in August. Just noticed them on the GGBP website.

Is CS And Jo a reprint or has it never been published before?

Think it's new, had FOCS magazine this morning with catalogue, and it diosn't say it'ss a reprint, I think it usually does say if so.

I just checked on the GGBP website list of "All Books Ever Printed" - Chalet School and Jo isn't listed there, either. so I think it's safe to assume that this is the first time they are issuing it.

In case anyone is looking for Heather Leaves School on Ebay, I would suggest searching using the book title rather than just browsing. For some bizarre reason it's insisting on putting it in the computer manuals category :banghead: I've reported it to Ebay but don't know how long it will take to sort out.

And they have said that they will only be printing one new EBD CS book a year - leaving space for more reprints and fill-ins.

How many CS books have they still got left?

Excluding Richenda, which they will be printing next year, I can only think of Exploits, Peggy, and Theodora, but I know there are more than that. I'm at work at the moment, and can't check my book shelf.

How many more years until we can own a complete set of GGBP Chalet books?

Lintons, Jo Returns, Island, Leader and Wins the Trick as well, I think.

At this rate, it'll be another decade before we have a complete set!

I'm happy about Richenda and Headmistress.

I wish they would reprint Kenya.

The next ones I'm hoping they publish are Lintons and/or Theodora.

I can’t see Richenda being the only new CS title, surely there’ll be another one later in the year.

They have already published Trials, the first time for that title, this year.
