About this deal

Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. That's one of those devices with a cork that fits into the barrel and when the trigger is pulled a burst of pressure pops the cork out to hit the target. Her books have sold over 500 million copies and have been translated into more languages more often than any other children's author. Well, Amelia Jane gets hold of some and anyone who knows the way her mind works will be able to visualize what might eventuate. Amelia Jane has an uncanny knack for getting herself into mischief and trouble with the rest of the toys in the playroom, from throwing a big pile of alphabet blocks out the window and pushing shoes into a mouse hole to hiding clockwork keys and popping balloons.

She wrote over 700 books and 2,000 short stories, including favourites such as The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree and Malory Towers. She is the author of over 700 books for children and creator of a host of legendary characters, including ‘The Famous Five, The Secret Seven’ and, most famously, ‘Noddy’, Big Ears’ and the other inhabitants of Toyland. 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! Amelia Jane is a doll who likes to cause mischief in the toy cupboard when the humans are not around.I loved them as a child myself and now love listening to my 8 year old daughter read the same stories to me (and her dolls! The Dean books show her with quite a pleasant face, and the pictures by Rene Cloke give her a mischievous look every now and again.

I used to read this to her as a young child and something she covered in sixth form reminded her of it so she asked me to try to get it for her. The clockwork clown comes up with an idea and follows it through so that when Amelia Jane starts chasing everyone with a pin, she ends up experiencing a rather 'bumpity-bump' time.
