Enid Blyton's Amelia Jane is big, bad and the world's naughtiest toy!
Amelia Jane is full of mischievous ideas. This time, she hides things inside poor old bear's tummy, pours water down everyone's clothes and swaps the toys' wind-up keys so that clockwork robot is jumping like a rabbit. But the other toys are not letting her get away with. One day, when Amelia is fast asleep, they paint spots on her to make her think she's got measles.
Ten mischievous tales from the world's naughtiest toy! First published separately in the 1950s, this collection contains the classic texts and illustrations by Deborah Allwright, cover by Alex T. Smith (2011):
