The Lovereading4Kids comment
3+ Loveable Winnie the Witch is back for a new and typically dotty adventure and this time it is with pumpkins. Winnie loves all kinds of vegetables but she loves pumpkins best of all. Sick of struggling home from the market with them, Winnie decides to grow her own. With a little hard work and a lot of magic Winnie soon has an amazing supply of pumpkins. So many pumpkins that even Winnie and her cat Wilbur can’t eat them all. But luckily Winnie comes up with a wholly original use for a giant pumpkin… For slightly older children who are beginning to enjoy reading alone or aloud there’s Winnie’s Big Cackling Book.
Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin (Book and CD) by Valerie Thomas
Winnie and Wilbur love their vegetables. They are regulars at the weekly farmers' market to stock up on their greens, but bringing them back home on a broomstick proves to be rather hazardous. Winnie decides to grow her own and digs a vegetable patch in her garden. Not having the patience of a true gardener, she uses a little magic to speed up the growing process... only to end up with a garden overrun by enormous vegetables. She uses her giant pumpkin to make pumpkin pies, pumpkin scones, creamy pumpkin soup for Wilbur, and dish after dish of roast pumpkin. She invites all her neighbours to help themselves to pumpkin, too. Eventually the yummy orange flesh is all gone but the shell remains. What can Winnie do with it? She waves her wand, shouts 'Abracadabra!', and something amazing happens...
This edition comes with an audio CD where the story is narrated over an imaginative soundtrack of music and effects.
