Winnie's Treasure Hunt and Other Stories by Laura Owen

This bumper edition includes stories from Winnie Spells Trouble, Winnie Adds Magic, and Winnie the Bold. Winnie the Witch is bold and brave! In Winnie Spells Trouble there's trouble after school, trouble with Auntie Aggie, trouble with her double, and trouble in ancient Egypt. In Winnie Adds Magic Winnie's going green, going on a treasure hunt, going on stage, and going home with the class goldfish. And in Winnie the Bold she's bravely taming a tiger, mountaineering, riding a ghost train, and jousting with knights of old! Fans who have grown up with Winnie, or those new to her charms, can enjoy her chaotic capers in this crazy collection of twelve stories, 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!


'Winnie is sometimes fearless, often clueless, and always ... priceless!' * Express & Echo * 'Funny, mischievous, silly, and exciting. Great stuff.' * Giles Andreae *'
