Veda She is naughty because she is a homemade doll, and the other toys are not naughty because they are made at shops.

This is story about a mischievous doll named Amelia Jane. All the store-bought toys in the nursery are always well behaved, but homemade Amelia Jane is always up to tricks.

Amelia Jane can never be good for more than one week. She often plays nasty tricks on the other toys and gets them all into trouble. As a result, the toys always try to teach Amelia Jane a lesson by playing some tricks on her, but Amelia Jane never learns. With every trick she plays, someone always ends up hurt, and sometimes

I remember reading this book as a child and enjoying it. This is one book which thought me not to judge a book by its cover because when my mom first gave it to me, I said "mom, this looks so boring" and I was obviously wrong. I have always been a big fan of Enid Blyton and have always enjoyed her most of her books like 'Thirteen O'Clock' and '12 silver cups' but the Amelia Jane series is very different. This is the sort of book any growing up child should read. It has very simple grammar and th ...more

I thought Naughty Jane would completely reform or be taken away by the children so that the other dolls could love in peace.
But I still like the fact she scars her hand and she will always remember that she got it by being naughty and mean
Enid Blyton used to be my fav author whn i was 10..!!!

Franny: I really like this book because it brings silly toys to life and they go on adventure all around the city. She plays lots of tricks on the other people bu never gets caught by humans. I give this book 4 stars because they could have put more in about the humans.

I would give this doll away but Amelia Jane’s redeeming feature is that she does accept her mistakes and consequences. She doesn’t seem to learn lessons from them which makes these stories enjoyable to children. These stories popular with kids who like that she is not perfect.

Revisiting the books of my youth out of a feeling of nostalgia! I loved Enid Blyton when I was younger and can't wait to re-read these with my own children.

I bought this at a bring-and-buy sale at school. The cover looked all right, and I liked Enid Blyton's 'The Naughtiest Girl in the School' series, so I got it. It turned out to be very disappointing. Before reading it, I thought Amelia Jane was a real person, not a doll! I adore books about naughty little kids, they're usually so good and funny. Instead, it was a pile of boring drivel for three year olds.

If you're looking for good books about misbehaving children, try 'Le petit Nicolas', 'Horr
Read this to my class at school, it seems a bit dated now and a couple of the children actually gasped when I read the word stupid ( one of the toys told another they were stupid) I even got a few hands raised miss miss you said stupid!! The main toy was a naughty doll called Amelia Jane, apparently it wasn't really her fault she was so naughty it was because she wasn't a proper doll bought from a toy shop like the other but had infant been home made so didn't have any breeding or manners sewn i ...more

Naughty Amelia Jane was a kind of a interesting and a funny book .its about a girl named Amelia Jane she as the most naughty doll in the toys.She was the most giant doll. All the other toys were from a shop so they were very well-mannered but Amelia Jane was picked out from the garbage so she was very rude to the toys.She always does some very naughty things that the toys think that she is very rude.So it was amazing book.

Amelia Jane is a very naughty doll, described as The Terror of the Toy Cupboard, who goes around being an absolute horror to the other toys. But not only the other toys - she snips Nanny's carpet, curtain and favourite handkerchief.

This book is brilliant, for six-to-nine-year-olds. I recommend it highly - very highly.

This series is very disturbing to adults but to a child, it nicely plays out all those not so nice aggressive feelings in the world of toys. This series inspired me to make my own verbal sequels to the adventures and terrorization of Amelia Jane called "Amelia Bad-elia" -- yes, even as a pre-teen I had stigmatized Amelia Jane as bad but redeemable by her need to be loved.

I don't remember reading this book earlier. It is a cute and funny book about a naughty doll. I am sure I will make my son read this book as it is too good. But whether the already naughty boy will learn some naughty tricks from Amelia, or learn to be good since Amelia got into trouble every time she was naughty, time will tell. I enjoyed reading this as an adult too.

A greatly nostalgic story that I first read as a young child. Super fun and ideal for kids as not only is their mischief and adventure, but also a lesson to be learnt that keeps it safe for influential kids.
