Winnie's Magic Moments (3 in 1 volume) by Valerie Thomas

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A bumper picture book which includes three of the loveable Winnie the Witch’s great adventures in one book. Winnie’s unusual magic is excellently displayed when her wand stops working, when she tries to get to grips with her new computer and when she has an unusual day out at the seaside. As ever, Winnie’s adventures are hilarious and unpredictable. To see an extract from any of the three stories included in this bumper edition, please click on the individual titles below


Winnie's Magic Wand

Winnie's New Computer

Winnie at the Seaside


Winnie's Magic Moments (3 in 1 volume) by Valerie Thomas

Welcome to the wonderful world of Winnie the Witch! Join Winnie and Wilbur on the day her wand stops working, on the day her computer mouse causes mischief, and on the day they decide to go to the beach ... Here, in one book, are three of Winnie and Wilbur's craziest capers: Winnie's Magic Wand, Winnie's New Computer, and Winnie at the Seaside.


Paul's artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged, stretching the simple story within reach of a wide age group. The Guardian

About the Author

Valerie Thomas

Valerie Thomas was born in Melbourne, Australia, and has lived there for most of her life, apart from six years spent in Europe, where she worked in England, France and Norway. She is a teacher, and has taught in primary, secondary, and special schools in Australia and England as well as lecturing in English Teaching Method in a Teachers' College in Melbourne.

For many years she worked as an educational researcher and curriculum consultant in the area of spelling, and has written extensively on the subject. Her other main interest is travel. She has travelled to most corners of the world, and has written about her travels: the first piece of writing she had published was an account of her experience picking grapes for the champagne harvest in France. She is now trying to organise her life so that she never has to experience another Winter.

In 1987 her phenomenally successful children’s book Winnie the Witch, illustrated by Korky Paul, was published by Oxford University Press and won the Children’s Book of the Year Award. She used to live with a big black cat exactly like Wilbur.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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.

Angela East

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
