Woozy the Wizard: A Present for Pig by Elli Woollard

Today is Pig's birthday! Hooray and woo hoo! But I don't have a present. Oh, what shall I do? I need something quickly, I need to be swift. Pig must not guess that I've not got a gift. Woozy the Wizard has forgotten Pig's birthday. Oh no! Pig needs a present. But when all of Woozy's spells go wrong, what will Woozy do? The third book in a brand new series about Woozy the Wizard and his pet Pig - with magic, friendship and a surprise cake! Told in rhyme with bright, bold full-colour illustrations throughout, this is the perfect read for 4+ children who are moving on from picture books but aren't quite ready for chapter books.

About the Author

Elli Woollard

Elli Woollard started writing stories after an embarrassing incident in which her youngest son broke Michael Rosen's glasses. Having previousl written poetry, Elli's snappy rhymes, catchy, rhythms and witty stories have captured the imagination of the children's book world; from picture book collaborations with wonderfully talented illustrators such as Benji Davies (The Giant of Jum and The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight), Steven Lenton (The Great Gran Plan, 2017), to a first chapter book with the marvellous Laura Ellen Anderson (Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate). In everything she does, Elli Woollard brings a unique new voice to children's fiction, and is definitely an author to watch. She lives in London with her four children, her husband and two guinea pigs.
