I've got the "Five Adventures at the Famous School" Box Set but I don't think it has the correct books in it. Could anyone tell me what titles should be in the box? Thanks!

There is more than one box set - I can identify at least three and there may be more.
In each case the titles seem to be completely random and unconnected with each other!

Cover picture: Camp (and ?Wrong)
Contains: Camp, Three, Wrong, Eustacia and Excitements

Cover picture:n/k
Contains: And Jo, Princess, Island, Problem and Coming of Age

Cover picture: School at and Exploits
Contains: School At, Exploits, Wrong, Wins the Trick and Leader

Thank you. At present I have Princess, Island, And Jo. Problem and Jo Returns - so almost matching set 2. The cover pictures, however, are Camp and, I also think, Wrong. And the writing on the spines is in at least 3 different styles, although the books are all of the same era!

Thanks Ivohenry - I didn't think to look there! The first one looks exactly the same except for one title different so I will try to swap that title out with the correct one.
