Who better to enjoy the delights of the seaside and the high seas than Winnie the Witch and her longsuffering cat Wilbur? There are three different stories in this bumper edition and the two enjoy some typically exuberant and surprising adventures at the beach, as pirates, and in some magical deep sea diving. Korky Paul’s quirky, detailed illustrations make the most of Valerie Thomas’ ever-inventive texts and there are new things to spot on each separate reading - no wonder Winnie and Wilbur are so well-loved by young readers and their families. ~ 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.
