Well-loved Winnie the Witch is back in four new adventures each as madcap as the one before! Entranced by a visit to the circus, Winnie decides she’ll have a go herself. Inevitably, Wilbur the cat gets involved too and the results are unexpected to say the least. Other adventures include post-party blues, Winnie’s attempts at metal detecting and the unusual shopping trip Winnie goes on when the cupboard is bare. Every adventure is wittily illustrated by Korky Paul.
A small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to read and review Mini Winnie which is the first 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.'....

Winnie Goes Batty by Laura Owen
Those who know her, know that Winnie the Witch can be a little batty, to say the least. In 'Big Top Winnie' Winnie would love to have the grace of a high-wire walker, only to discover her talents are more suited to clowning around; in 'Winnie's Bubble Trouble' Winnie gets (literally) carried away in her attempt escape from doing the housework; in 'Winnie Digs Deep' Winnie hunts for priceless objects in her garden but finds out that Wilbur and Jerry are her real treasures; and in 'Winnie Goes Batty' Winnie is about to rustle up some batburgers in the kitchen when she discovers that bats are actually sweet little creatures and should certainly never be on the menu! Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!
