The fifth in the fantastically funny Pongwiffy series, newly repackaged; celebrating 21 years of Pongwiffy!
Pongwiffy is very, very bored. It is raining and she has nothing to do. Pongwiffy is a Witch of Action, who hates being cooped up. Her idea of a good day is to be out and about, swapping gossip and recipes, and inviting herself to tea. But the incessant rain has put a stop to all that. Pongwiffy decides the Witches need some sort of excitement. And what better than a holiday? It is the matter of a moment for Pongwiffy to take the Coven’s much treasured funds and blow them all on a trip to the ever popular holiday destination Sludgehaven-on-Sea. Which is precisely when the trouble starts ...
A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.
‘Brought roars of both delight and disgust . . . an ebulliently uninhibited farce’
‘As appealing as Horrid Henry crossed with Winnie the Witch’
‘Jokey enough to persuade reluctant readers there is pleasure to be had from dipping into books’
‘Young readers adore the jokes and the grubbiness’
