The Lovereading4Kids comment
Due July 2009. Hugo her hamster and her broom decide it’s time to muck out Pongwiffy’s filthy hovel, much to her annoyance. So to cheer herself up she has a go at one of her granny’s really tricky spells that’s full of unusual ingredients and what a spot of bother she gets herself into and her hovel.
Pongwiffy the witch was created by the author over 20 years ago and the six titles have entertained millions of children and their parents for a long time. Now, 20 years on they have been brought to life for a new generation with fantastic new covers and best of all a brand new story too, Pongwiffy: Back on Track.

Pongwiffy and the Spell of the Year by Kaye Umansky
It is spring-cleaning time and Pongwiffy is out of sorts. Hugo her Hamster Familiar and her Broom are insisting on clearing out her lovely, dirty hovel and making it spick and span – and she hates it. But there is one silver lining: as a result of all the tidying up, Pongwiffy unearths Granny Malodour’s amazing recipe for Wishing Water – a traditional spell that actually works! But the ingredients are quite unusual and very hard to come by, and Pongwiffy is soon in a spot of bother ...
A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.
‘Brought roars of both delight and disgust . . . an ebulliently uninhibited farce’
‘Jokey enough to persuade reluctant readers there is pleasure to be had from dipping into books’
‘Young readers adore the jokes and the grubbiness’
