Giddy-up, Winnie!

LoveReading View on Giddy-up, Winnie!

Winnie and Wilbur are up to all sorts of mischief yet again in this cackling good read that consists of four crazily funny stories. Winnie and Wilbur together with their equally zany friends are illustrated brilliantly and exuberantly by the wild and wacky Korky Paul. His black and white line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!

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.'....

Giddy-up, Winnie! Synopsis

Winnie the Witch has many talents! In 'Winnie's Wheels' she magics an old wreck of a car to take herself and Wilbur on holiday and demonstrates some rather unconventional driving skills; in 'Blooming Winnie' she summons the help of the ghost of Great Aunt Winifred in order to control a class of unruly children who have come to see her garden; in 'Winnie's Tea Party' Winnie is playing hostess and showing off her culinary repertoire to her oddball relatives; and in 'Giddy-Up, Winnie!' Winnie and Wilbur head for the local race meeting on a homemade hobby horse - with hilarious results. Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a supporting cast of zany 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!
