LoveReading View on Pongwiffy and the Goblins' Revenge

Due June 2009. Pongwiffy and her friends are always giving the goblins a hard time, at least that’s what they say, so the goblins decide to broomnap the witches’ brooms.  Oh dear, and if only Pongwiffy had listened to her broom none of it would have happened.

Pongwiffy the witch was created by the author over 20 years ago and the six titles have entertained millions of children and their parents for a long time.  Now, 20 years on they have been brought to life for a new generation with fantastic new covers and best of all a brand new story too, Pongwiffy: Back on Track.

Pongwiffy and the Goblins' Revenge Synopsis

Pongwiffy's Broom has come over all funny. At any mention of 'goblin' or 'axe' or 'chop' it seems to freeze over with fear (more than normal that is). If Pongwiffy could be bothered to speak Wood and have a conversation with the Broom, she would find out what is happening. But she doesn't – so she doesn't find out that the Goblins are planning to broomnap all the Witches' Brooms and subject them to a fate worse than a very clean and tidy house ... And perhaps if Pongwiffy had had her wits about her she would also have been a lot more careful when talking to Ali Pali, the unscrupulous Genie ... Pongwiffy needs to pay attention, Ali Pali has his greedy eyes on the closely-guarded contents of Pongwiffy's very own Dump!


A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.
