The Lovereading4Kids comment

Witch Winnie and her long-suffering black cat Wilbur are two of the most appealing and endearing picture book characters, and their adventures, as told by Valerie Thomas and illustrator extraordinaire Korky Paul, a fabulous mix of magic and mishap, the relationship between the pair the rock on which it all stands. Thomas’s straight-as-a-die text finds the perfect foil in Korky Paul’s fabulous illustrations, each one packed with so much quirky, humorous detail that there’s something new to find on every read. Not only does this box set contain six of their liveliest adventures, it also includes two CDs featuring more than 90 minutes of stories and music. Unmissable fun. ~ Andrea Reece

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.

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. It has since been translated into many languages around the world, and also been adapted for CD-ROM. Since then Valerie has written another eleven fabulous Winnie adventures.
