I've just read this for the first time. I thought it was a very good story, much one of EBD's better stand-alone books, but the ending was completely bonkers!

Judy gets off to a bad start at her new school. when she breaks a vase belonging to one of the in-crowd. When there's then a spate of theft and vandalism, she's the prime suspect. It's obviously going to turn out that she's innocent, so what's going on? It turns out that a lady living nearby has got a pet monkey, which has got out of her house, climbed up a ventilation shaft into the school (on numerous different occasions), got into classrooms and dormitories without being noticed and smashed vases, stolen exam papers, spilt ink and run off with a copy of the Bible! OK, it's not quite as bad as Professor Richardson going off in a spaceship, but it's hardly very likely :lol: .

Just wondered what anyone else who'd read this made of it. It was very good apart from the silly ending!

It's a while since I've read it, but that's my recollection, too - good story with slightly mad ending. And I liked that we had a 'good' character called Thekla!

I agree, I enjoyed it although the ending is unlikely. It was my first EBD.

EBD is in the middle of her Guides and folkdancing phase

I do remember sitting in a hotel in India, watching monkeys climb in and out of top story windows in the building across the street. So once you've got the monkey, the rest might follow. However, I'd expect there to be some monkey poop as well.

Yes, it did occur to me that it was obviously a toilet-trained monkey :lol: :lol: .
