The Lovereading4Kids comment
A handsome gift volume of eight hilarious stories about Winnie the Witch and her faithful cat Wilbur. Whether it is creating fabulous knickers or causing chaos on the football pitch Winnie has a knack of being at the heart of all kinds of endearing madness. Full colour illustrations bring the magical mayhem to life vividly.
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.'....

The Misadventures of Winnie the Witch by Laura Owen
Winnie is full of mad-cap schemes and plans to put her magic to good use. Wilbur is her long-suffering best friend, and everyone's favourite moggy. Join them both in this fantastic gift edition. From Winnie's knicker shop, where spiders sew up the lacy trims, to the time Winnie cooked some lovely turkey tonsil titbits, giggles are guaranteed! Perfect for young readers who are ready to enjoy longer stories with more narrative content, complemented by vibrant illustrations by the brilliant Korky Paul.
'Oxford's brand-new series of Winnie the Witch young fiction ... is bound to be a winner'. The Bookseller
Praise for Whizz-Bang Winnie:
'The pictures, as ever, bristle with an inspired lunacy that 5+ love.' Amanda Craig, The Times
'[Winnie's] mad antics make hilarious reading.' Primary Times
