Synopsis

Winnie's Big Bad Robot by Valerie Thomas

Winnie the Witch is very pleased when she magics her cardboard robot into a real one. Beep, beep! But when the naughty robot takes Winnie's wand, things start to get totally out of control. It's up to Wilbur, Winnie's lovable cat, to stop the magical mayhem and save the day. A delightful new picture book featuring everyone's favourite witch, and her clever cat.

Winnie and Wilbur is an animated comedy series for 4-7year olds based on the best selling Winnie and Wilbur books by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul, published by Oxford University Press. From winduna.com

About the Author

Valerie Thomas

Valerie Thomas was born in Melbourne, Australia, and has lived there for most of her life, apart from six years spent in Europe, where she worked in England, France and Norway. She is a teacher, and has taught in primary, secondary, and special schools in Australia and England as well as lecturing in English Teaching Method in a Teachers' College in Melbourne.

For many years she worked as an educational researcher and curriculum consultant in the area of spelling, and has written extensively on the subject. Her other main interest is travel. She has travelled to most corners of the world, and has written about her travels: the first piece of writing she had published was an account of her experience picking grapes for the champagne harvest in France. She is now trying to organise her life so that she never has to experience another Winter.

In 1987 her phenomenally successful children’s book Winnie the Witch, illustrated by Korky Paul, was published by Oxford University Press and won the Children’s Book of the Year Award. She used to live with a big black cat exactly like Wilbur.
