Pongwiffy and the Holiday of Doom

Written by Kaye Umansky

Illustrated by Nick Price

Pongwiffy and the Holiday of Doom Synopsis

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.
