Pongwiffy and the Goblins' Revenge

Written by Kaye Umansky

Illustrated by Nick Price

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.

Pongwiffy and the Goblins' Revenge Press Reviews
