Life is never dull for Winnie the Witch! In ‘Hot Cross Winnie’ a trip to the shops turns into a desperate hunt for a missing Wilbur; in ‘Winnie’s Book Day’ a problem with reading doesn’t stop Winnie from bringing stories to life for a whole class full of children; in ‘Winnie Gets Cracking’ she creates a ‘chocodile’ capable of laying chocolate eggs; and in ‘Whizz-Bang Winnie’ Winnie gets her skates on to speed past the motorised competition in a ‘hot wheels’ race.
Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone’s favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters. Korky Paul’s exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!
Winnie young fiction is perfect for children who have grown up with the picture books and are now ready to share longer stories about a favourite, familiar character. The stories are perfect for reading to young Winnie fans and for more confident readers, can also be read by children themselves.
