Whizz-bang Winnie

Written by Laura Owen

Illustrated by Korky Paul

Featured Books for 5+ readers

LoveReading View on Whizz-bang Winnie

It was with a thrill and eager anticipation that we at Lovereading4kids saw this fabulous new series of young fiction 5+ age range. Finding good books for those children moving on from picture books is always a tough call as there’s a real dearth of good publishing in this area. Winnie is already an established character in the world of picture books and Korky Paul is of course synonymous in the world of book illustration. Each title contains four complete crazily funny stories featuring Winnie, everyone’s favourite witch along with her supporting cast including her big black cat, Wilbur. There’s humour, slapstick and moments of real drama within each story. Pure magic. Mini Winnie is also available.

A small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to read and review Mini Winnie which is the freader reviewsirst Winnie Young Fiction title. Here's a taster....'Each page of the book is crammed full of really cool jokes and Korky Paul’s illustrations are great, making me chuckle away for hours. It’s a fantastic book and I can’t wait to get hold of more of the series to see what Winnie gets up to.'....

Whizz-bang Winnie Synopsis

Life is never dull for Winnie the Witch! In 'Hot Cross Winnie' a trip to the shops turns into a desperate hunt for a missing Wilbur; in 'Winnie's Book Day' a problem with reading doesn't stop Winnie from bringing stories to life for a whole class full of children; in 'Winnie Gets Cracking' she creates a 'chocodile' capable of laying chocolate eggs; and in 'Whizz-Bang Winnie' Winnie gets her skates on to speed past the motorised competition in a 'hot wheels' race. Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!
