Mabel Jones is a series of fantasy-adventure children’s books, written by British author Will Mabbitt and illustrated by Ross Collins.

The books currently released include:

  1. The unlikely adventures of Mabel Jones (2015)
  2. Mabel Jones and The Forbidden City (2016)
  3. Mabel Jones and the Doomsday Book (2016)

Mabel Jones provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: the titular character fight with her cutlass and went on “unlikely” adventures.
  • Pajama-Clad Hero: Mabel never takes off her pyjamas while in the Noo World, despite wearing the pyjamas for weeks without changing them. This is taken to ridiculous levels during the only time she DID take them off—dressing a skeleton in her pyjamas as a distraction—only to immediately change back into her pyjamas when the danger was over despite them just having been on a, well, skeleton. She must really like wearing her pyjamas.

How well does it match the trope?
