The Lovereading4Kids 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.

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.'....

Synopsis

Nitty 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!
