The Lovereading4Kids comment

Easy to read, these four short stories give fresh insights into the life of the loveable if accident prone Winnie the Witch. From buying upholstered knickers to stop her getting bruised on her broomstick to trying to sell her unwanted possessions but ending up with as much as she started with, Winnie has unusual and wonderfully entertaining adventures.

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.'....

Synopsis

Winnie's Big Catch by Laura Owen

In four new stories, illustrated by Korky Paul, we find Winnie and Wilbur up to their usual mischief. Whether they are setting up at a car-boot sale, putting out to sea on a fishing trip, responding to a gap in the market for broomstick-friendly pants, or showing some team spirit on the football pitch, one thing is certain-nothing will go to plan!

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.
