Amelia Jane, one of the most memorable and certainly the naughtiest of Enid Blyton's creations, is back - and she's as big, as bad, and as full of real child-appeal as ever!
For the first time published in one volume: Ten fantastic stories that will be new to children everywhere! Amelia Jane gets up to as much mischief as ever, swapping the toys' wind-up keys - so that the clockwork robot is jumping like a rabbit, the motor-car is turning head-over-heels and the mouse is zooming along like a train! Then she hides things inside the poor old bear's tummy, pours water down everyone's clothes! It's all in a day's work for naughty Amelia Jane.
But the toys do sometimes manage to get her back - like painting spots on her to make her think she's got the measles, and making a special record to tell her what they really think of her!
