Series: Annabel series - Alan Davidson (book 4. I thought I'd try out a new school series - Annabel. These are much more contemporary than the school series I usually read, having been written in the 80s. Annabel's school is quite different than any I've seen portrayed in fiction from that time period, which is not surprising since this is a British series. The adults are generally rather dim and there's more emphasis on boys than in older school series, of course

I am a big fan of Annabel and of the Annabel books, but this one is the least of the five by a wide margin.

Usually I find Annabel charming, refreshing and loaded with energy, joie de vivre, and good intentions. Not so here in this set of three stories. In the first story Annabel weaves a complex web of lies and deception to avoid Mrs. da Susa's wrath for sneaking off campus. She takes advantage of da Susa's intense desire to help troubled youth by pretending to a number of troubles at home. The story is embarrassing to da Susa, to Annabel's mother, to Annabel's BFF Kate and to Annabel. There are some very pithy shots aimed at da Susa, but they are edgy and mean spirited. In the second story Annabel needs to convince Kate's dad that she is responsible enough to go on vacation with Kate. The dad is portrayed as a grump, Annabel is a silly nincompoop, and Kate is left adrift and friendless in one of the saddest chapters I've ever read. The final story has Annabel saving a bunny from an RAF bombing range and it is as predictable and flat as that sounds.

I don't get it and I don't know why this book is so sour and aimless, but there it is. There are some funny lines, but just as many fall flat. A disappointment for regular readers and likely to cause new readers to wonder what all of the buzz is about. Any of the other Annabel books will be a jolly read, but this one just somehow misses the mark entirely.

Good addition to the series. The humor in the first story is somewhat edgier than usual but I suspect teenagers will get it. Wicked! Had me laughing out loud. In the second story, I liked Annabel's well-meaning attempts to steer Kate's father towards a new career - again very funny. And the rabbit story - so sweet, showed Annabel's softer side.

I am happy there were only 3 stories grouped together for I do not think I could bear to read one more. This is not intended to be a mean spirited comment, but this book, as a whole, is quite dull and unimpressive. Perhaps Annabel needs to be laid to rest for a while or deeply buried with no intent on resurrecting. Sometimes, one needs to know when a series is finished instead of continuing to draw it out and ruining it all together.
I must admit, I have not read all of the Annabel books yet. I probably will not unless I am enticed with a freebie and even then...probably not.
