Pongwiffy: Back on Track Synopsis

A much-awaited new Pongwiffy title from this very popular author with a huge fan base, published alongside the completely repackaged Pongwiffy backlist

Pongwiffy, a witch of very dirty habits, is slumming it as usual in her filthy hovel, Number One, Dump Edge, Witchway Wood. But all is not well with Pongwiffy. It is slowly dawning on her that a witch cannot live on greasy skunk stew, limitless supplies from Sugary Candy’s, the local sweet shop, and the minimum of exercise alone. Pongwiffy’s teeth, stomach and general body parts are crying out for some healthy care and attention.

It is time to take action. It is time to get healthy. And Pongwiffy is determined to take not only her fellow witches, but all the residents of Witchway Wood with her. There is only one thing for it: the greatest sporting event to happen in Witchway Wood - the O’Lumpicks!

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