It was with a thrill and eager anticipation that we at Lovereading4kids saw this fabulous new series of young fiction for children of 5+. Finding good books for those children moving on from picture books is always a tough call as there’s a real dearth of good publishing in this area. Winnie is already an established character in the world of picture books and Korky Paul is of course synonymous in the world of book illustration. Each title contains four complete crazily funny stories featuring Winnie, everyone’s favourite witch along with her supporting cast including her big black cat, Wilbur. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!

Mini Winnie by Laura Owen
Winnie the Witch is ready for anything life throws at her! In 'Winnie's Awful Auntie' Winnie and Wilbur have to deal with an unbearably fussy relative on an unexpected visit; in 'Winnie Gets Cleaning' Winnie offers her janitorial services to the local school with hilarious results; in 'Winnie and the Ghost in the Post' Winnie and Wilbur find themselves the surprise winners of a television poetry competition and in 'Mini Winnie' there's an unusual solution to a laundry problem. Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters.
