The Lovereading4Kids comment
March 2012 Book of the Month. Join Winnie and Wilbur under the sea for another irresistible adventure. Winnie the madcap witch and her faithful cat Wilbur are enjoying a well-deserved holiday by the seaside. But the sea is very WET and Wilbur, since water and fur do not agree, is soon one very unhappy cat. Cleverly, Winnie turns him into a cat fish and then turns herself into an octopus so that the two of them can have fun together. But disaster strikes! Winnie drops her wand. How will the two friends ever get back to dry land? This pair's glorious adventures will continue to captivate young readers.
Winnie Under the Sea by Valerie Thomas
2012 is the 25th anniversary of Winnie the Witch. Winnie and Wilbur whizz off for a holiday at the seaside. Winnie can't wait to dive in and explore life under the sea but Wilbur isn't so sure. Water is very wet after all and he feels quite at home dozing on land. But Winnie has an idea. ABRACADABRA! Wilbur has been turned into a cat-fish! Suddenly Wilbur doesn't mind getting wet and he's having so much fun that Winnie decides to turn herself into an octopus so they can swim with the fishes together. But oh no! Winnie drops her wand and it sinks out of sight. They must find the wand or risk being sea creatures forever. After a thorough search of the ocean they find it in a shipwreck at the bottom of the sea and Winnie uses her magic so they can enjoy the ocean safely, as a witch and a cat.
'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.' - Guardian
Praise for Winnie in Space:
'The real delight of this eternally scatty pair (Winnie and Wilbur) lies in Korky Paul's scrawling, madcap illustrations.' - Jennifer and Andy Lofthouse, ABC magazine
