Additional Information

Winnie the Witch is ready for anything life throws at her! In 'Winnie's Awful Auntie' Winnie and Wilbur have to deal with an unbearably fussy relative on an unexpected visit; in 'Winnie Goes Cleaning' Winnie offers her janitorial services to the local school with hilarious results; in 'Winnie and the Ghost in the Post' Winnie and Wilbur find themselves the surprise winners of a television poetry competition and in 'Mini Winnie' there's an unusual solution to a laundry problem. 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!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Notice how the official description of the book carefully avoids any mention of the author? That's because these new Mini Winnie books have a different author. And they are AWFUL. Valerie Thomas's books are charming, original and lyrical, and Winnie is such a fabulous character, eccentric and a wee bit absent minded but a class act. These Laura Owen ones are tacky, stilted and boring and Winnie becomes a blowsy newt-eating stereotype. Even Korky Paul's artworks have lost their zing, probably since he has such tedious stuff to illustrate, and there is no space or colour in these small black and white books for his usual fabulous details. I have no idea why the publishers would do this, either Valerie Thomas is dead/disabled and they are hushing it up, or they just felt the need to kill the goose to get their paws on its last golden egg. Please, don't encourage them by wasting your money on this garbage. Go and buy a Valerie Thomas book instead!!
We love Winnie the Witch!! She is funny and entertaining and my daughter loves to have me read to her about Winnie and Wilbur. Great stories!!
I love this series of books. Wonderful drawings full of intriguing and amusing details. Fun stories. Recommend this for not only children but also anyone with a good sense of humor!
