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 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.'....

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.

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.
