“It’s a special year at Pine Street: the school is exactly one hundred years old.  Samantha Padgett and her friends reckon it should be pulled down but Mr Drake, the new headmaster, is keen to have a celebration.  What can they do?
Samantha is never one to ignore a challenge.  Here’s her chance not only to cheer up Pine Street but to impress her older Almond House friends and Mr Duncan, the head of Ash Grove.  Then, on a visit to the city museum, Samantha falls flat on her face and comes up with a brainwave: A Pine Street Victorian Week!  The school will be opened to visitors and for a whole week they will all dress, work, play and behave like those Pine Street children of long ago.  Preparations are soon in full swing.  Samantha’s old friend Mr Crump proves a mine of information and even Samantha’s running feud with the snooty new teacher, Mrs Wenlock cannot spoil the fun.  Then suddenly, things start to go wrong.”
