Synopsis

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!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
