IMPUNITY JANE by Rumer Godden


Email this review


In her children's books Rumer Godden creates a special atmosphere for a special audience. As in The Housewife and The Dolls' House, there is again a wistful quality to the story of the doll Impunity Jane, who finds her way into the pocket of a little boy, Gideon, and her heart's content in the wide world- instead of being cooped up in a doll's house at home. For Gideon, who senses Impunity Jane's loneliness when he sees her at his cousin's house, takes her out to adventures with his gang who come to like her too. Complemented with soft, feathery pictures by Adrienne Adams, this captures a far away childhood feeling for make-believe companionship.
