Korky Paul's popular picture book character is given a longer treatment for children aged 5-7 in this collection of four zany stories. In these stories, a trip to the shops turns into a desperate hunt for Wilbur, Winnie brings stories to life for a class of children, creates a 'chocodile' and gets her skates on for a hot wheels race.
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!
