Synopsis

Jane's Adventures Jane's Adventures in and Out of the Book, Jane's Adventures on the Island of Peeg, and Jane's Adventures in a Balloon by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy

Join Jane and her scatterbrained companion, the ever-dusting housekeeper Mrs. Deal, as they embark on outlandish adventures. Whether she's floating away in atomic-powered luxury airships or navigating through magical castles, Jane's hair-raising adventures will have you on the edge of your chair. Jane can be found sinking through the pages of a book to meet all sorts of weird characters such as witches, toads, ghosts, and even fantastic; or braving a whole string of crises and narrow escapes in improbable locations such as the Swiss Alps, the Scottish Islands, an African Jungle, and the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. Now, for the first time, encounter Jane's escapades in a single-volume collection of immensely readable and contemporary adventure-stories recalling the beloved children's tales of the past.
