Woman Who Won Things (B&W)

Written by Allan Ahlberg

Illustrated by Katharine McEwen

Woman Who Won Things (B&W) Synopsis

One lucky morning Mrs Gaskitt opens the post, and finds she's won a prize! Next she kisses the postman! Never mind, though - the postman is Mr Gaskitt doing his very latest job. Meanwhile Gus and Gloria get a new teacher, Mrs Plum, with silvery hair, a big smile and a huge suitcase, who's ever so helpful when things start to go missing in the classroom. And then Mrs Gaskitt finds she's won another prize!

Woman Who Won Things (B&W) Press Reviews

Ahlberg's direct and funny story-telling style makes reading as near-effortless as possible, and certainly shows that any effort is worth it. The Guardian; Ahlberg's deadpan humour coupled with McEwen's bright and breezy illustrations make this book as enjoyable for reading aloud as for early readers. The Financial Times
