Laura Owen - Author

Winnie the Witch was created by Valerie Thomas and all the Winnie picture books are written by her and brilliantly and zanily illustrated by the incomparable Korky Paul. The Winnie the Witch read aloud titles, perfect for those children just beginning to make the move from picture books to reading aloud or reading alone are written by Laura Owen and illustrated by Korky Paul. Laura has had unrestricted access to the world of Winnie and Wilbur. She has discovered hitherto unknown details about the life and mishaps of everyone’s favourite witch. Winnie has let Laura into her home and talked to her frankly about the many adventures she has shared with Wilbur. In order for this bond of trust to continue between Winnie and Laura, Laura has chosen to keep her profile as low as possible so there's nothing more we can tell you.
