Winnie the Bold! by Laura Owen

Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie the Bold, the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192748485. In these four new stories, illustrated by Korky Paul, everyone's favourite witch is full of surprises. She surprises Wilbur by getting a new 'kitten', she surprises a mountain goat when she goes on a camping trip, she surprises the school with her magic tricks, and she surprises herself when she stumbles into a medieval jousting competition and is transformed into a knight of old! Fans who have grown up with Winnie, or those new to her charms, can enjoy her chaotic capers in this latest young fiction title, perfect for reading alone or for sharing at bedtime. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!

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.
