Synopsis

Wonderfully Winnie! 3 in 1 Bindup by Laura Owen

Winnie the Witch is nothing short of wonderful! Here's just a taster of the twelve stories in this book: in 'Jurassic Winnie' you'll find her using magic to take a dinosaur's photo; in 'Detective Winnie' she tries out her sleuthing skills; in 'Winnie's Time Machine' she comes face to face with a rather fierce cavewoman; and in 'Winnie Goes Wild' she swings through the trees, Tarzan style! As well as the twelve stories, there are bonus pages of jokes at the end of the book - what could be more wonderful than Winnie? Twelve crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of characters. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!

Reviews

The story of Winnie and her black cat Wilbur is fast becoming a children's classic and with the current vogue for miniature books, it is certain to reach an even wider audience. Herts Advertiser Even witches can be made fun rather than frightening - friendly and un-scary witches can make excellent characters to draw on when looking for a model for dressing up... Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul's Winnie, heroine of Winnie the Witch and many subsequent titles is more a centre of catastrophe than terror. Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

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.
