LoveReading View on Winnie and Wilbur: Disgusting Dinners and Other Stories

Winnie the witch and her black cat Wilbur are deservedly some of the most popular characters in contemporary children’s books. This bumper volume contains twelve different adventures, involving them in a variety of entertaining and unusual domestic dramas. As always, Winnie is full of ideas, not all of them very practical, and Wilbur is the perfect foil, patient, long-suffering, supportive. Their escapades will keep children turning the pages effortlessly, and Korky Paul’s extraordinarily inventive black and white illustrations crackle with life and comic detail. Recommended holiday reading, or indeed anytime reading. ~ Andrea Reece
