The Lovereading4Kids comment

Four great, easy-to-read stories about the popular witch Winnie and her loyal cat Wilbur. Winnie and Wilbur have an adventure with a tooth fairy who gives Winnie a terrible fang, deal with the fleas in Wilbur’s fur when they want to show him off, set up their own one-witch band and try to get themselves tidied up and prettified for a photograph. Scruffy and chaotic, Wilbur and Winnie magic-enhanced life is fun to follow.

A small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to read and review Mini Winnie which is the freader reviewsirst Winnie Young Fiction title. Here's a taster....'Each page of the book is crammed full of really cool jokes and Korky Paul’s illustrations are great, making me chuckle away for hours. It’s a fantastic book and I can’t wait to get hold of more of the series to see what Winnie gets up to.'....

Winnie Says Cheese by Laura Owen

If you think you know Winnie the Witch, think again! In 'Winnie and the Toof Fairy' you'll find out what Winnie does when she realises she's not the only one with the ability to wave a wand; in 'Winnie's One-Witch Band' she tries to match Wilbur's musical talents; in 'Itchy Witchy' Winnie takes Wilbur (and his fleas) to the pet show; and in 'Winnie Says Cheese' Winnie and Wilbur take some supremely silly snapshots to add to their photo album.

Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story.

(Each book contains four complete stories)


"Oxford's brand-new series of Winnie the Witch young bound to be a winner." - The Bookseller

About the 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.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
