Synopsis

Pongwiffy: Back on Track by Kaye Umansky

A much-awaited new Pongwiffy title from this very popular author with a huge fan base, published alongside the completely repackaged Pongwiffy backlist

It is time to take action. It is time to get healthy. And Pongwiffy is determined to take not only her fellow witches, but all the residents of Witchway Wood with her. There is only one thing for it: the greatest sporting event to happen in Witchway Wood - the O’Lumpicks!

A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.

Reviews

‘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’
Guardian

‘Young readers adore the jokes and the grubbiness’
Daily Telegraph
