Synopsis

Winnie's Pirate Adventure by Valerie Thomas

Winnie the Witch would like to announce that in this book she is actually Winnie the pirate and Wilbur is not her cat, he's her parrot. When they arrive at Cousin Cuthbert's party in their fancy dress, Winnie and Wilbur discover a whole crew of children, ready for action. With a map and a fine pirate ship (thanks to a little magic from Winnie) they set off to find their treasure island. But a band of fierce pirates is already there.

What will Winnie and her fancy-dress pirates do? Will they manage to get the treasure? Join them in an adventure to remember on the high seas, it's pure swashbuckling magic!

Reviews

Pure magic! The Times

Paul's artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged.

About the Author

Valerie Thomas

Valerie Thomas was born in Melbourne, Australia, and has lived there for most of her life, apart from six years spent in Europe, where she worked in England, France and Norway. She is a teacher, and has taught in primary, secondary, and special schools in Australia and England as well as lecturing in English Teaching Method in a Teachers' College in Melbourne.

For many years she worked as an educational researcher and curriculum consultant in the area of spelling, and has written extensively on the subject. Her other main interest is travel. She has travelled to most corners of the world, and has written about her travels: the first piece of writing she had published was an account of her experience picking grapes for the champagne harvest in France. She is now trying to organise her life so that she never has to experience another Winter.

In 1987 her phenomenally successful children’s book Winnie the Witch, illustrated by Korky Paul, was published by Oxford University Press and won the Children’s Book of the Year Award. She used to live with a big black cat exactly like Wilbur.
