The Lovereading4Kids comment
Anyone who loves slime, sludge and anything else that is disgusting will love Pongwiffy because she loves them all very much. Pongwiffy is a witch with a difference. She is wedded to her bad habits and nobody, not even her best friend Sharkadder, will change the way she thinks. Pongwiffy’s search for a home away from her noisy next door neighbours, the goblins, is hugely entertaining.
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 decades. 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: A Witch of Dirty Habits by Kaye Umansky
Pongwiffy is a witch of very dirty habits. She also has a problem – the cave she has just moved into is filthy (although that's not the problem, Pongwiffy likes it like that) but also has extremely noisy neighbours. The neighbours (not unsurprisingly, as the cave is in Goblin Territory), are Goblins, and as well as being very, very stupid, are very, very noisy. They are so noisy that Pongwiffy can bear it no more and enlists the help of her best friend, Witch Sharkadder, to find her somewhere else to live. Which is nearly the end of one very beautiful friendship …
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’
