Now she's causing chaos with a boomerang, scribbling all over the nursery walls and playing all sorts of tricks on Mr Up-and-To!

Amelia Jane is an Enid Blyton series of short stories about a mischievous rag doll and her adventures with the other toys in the playroom.

It means extra work now for the 'straight-haired' doll, because she'll have to put her hair in curlers this evening seeing the water made her curl disappear!The series might take you on a rollercoaster of emotions or provide a steady companion on lazy Sunday afternoons. Still, I am delighted to have to go back in to tell her to stop reading, and to hear her sashaying around the house, quoting Amelia Jane (eg "Pooh! Fans of the series might find it intriguing to delve into other works by {author name} to see how their writing has evolved or how different themes are explored across their body of work.

In this book, she snips the tail off the pink rabbit, squirts Tom the soldier with water and gets up to mischief at the beach.

She was a doll given to the author's elder daughter (Gillian) and it appears that Enid Blyton sometimes sat Amelia Jane on her knee at meal-times and manipulated her to such good effect that her daughters thought the doll was really acting up. But for now, I don't like these stories and am rather surprised and dissapointed by them, considering how much I liked and grew up with the other Enyd Blyton's stories. But really, Amelia Jane has a brave and adventurous heart of gold - and when the toys need rescuing, it's Amelia Jane to the rescue! Her fantasy books, like the story of the mischievous rag doll Amelia Jane, are among her most popular creations and they promise to enchant boys and girls for generations to come.Throughout the 40s and 50s, Enid wrote books at a colossal pace: adventure stories, mysteries, magical stories, farming stories, stories for younger children, and best-selling series like Malory Towers and Amelia Jane. I too have been a fan of Enid Blyton and when I started reading Amelia Jane stories to my daughter, I could not help enjoying them myself. Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and loved dogs, gardening and the countryside.

Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. From an early age, children are warned about playing with matches and the same advice is taught to toys because anything that can be used to make a fire can be very dangerous. She’s a mischievous, strong, independent rag doll and she’s about to enchant a whole new generation of readers! The spell-checker doesn't approve of such a word so perhaps the stuff has gone from our nurseries, but in 1939 Amelia Jane managed to get hold of some and then got stuck into creating a few novel ways to use it.

Her books were terrific page-turners in the way no others were' – Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse . Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc. 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!
