July 2013 Book of the Month The Winnie the Witch young fiction is perfect for children moving on from picture books and beginning to read by themselves or for sharing together with your child. These funny, lively stories with the trademark Winnie illustrations from Korky Paul will keep the reader engaged. These twelve stories have previously been published separately but this special new edition combines favourites such as Winnie Says Cheese and Whizz-Bang Winnie.
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.'....

Absolutely Winnie! by Laura Owen
Winnie the Witch is ready for anything! Here's just a taster of the twelve stories in this book: in 'Mini Winnie' you'll find her shrinking herself down to the size of a teaspoon; in 'Winnie Says Cheese' she gets herself ready for the camera; in 'Itchy Witchy' she has to deal with an outbreak of fleas; and in 'Winnie's Book Day' she stages a superhero rescue!
As well as the twelve stories, there are bonus pages of jokes at the end of the book - what could be more absolutely entertaining than Winnie? Twelve 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!
