Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Best-selling Winnie the Witch is used to awkward and unpleasant situations but getting nits is a new one – and one of the worst. Will she be able to get rid of them with a bit of abracadabra? Just one of the four easy-to-read stories about everyone’s favourite witch.

SynopsisNitty Winnie by Laura Owen
Winnie the Witch does things differently! In 'Winnie's Wet Weekend' Winnie and Wilbur escape to the seaside where Winnie discovers the perils of living in a sandcastle; in 'Jurassic Winnie' a quest for a cereal packet collector's card sends Winnie and Wilbur back to the time of the dinosaurs; in 'A Wedding for Winnie' the preparations for her sister Wendy's wedding take a crazy turn when Winnie is put in charge; and in 'Nitty Winnie' find out what happens when Winnie's head is invaded by some tiny uninvited guests! 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!
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.
