Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie Goes Batty, the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192748386.

Those who know her, know that Winnie the Witch can be a little batty, to say the least. In 'Big Top Winnie' Winnie would love to have the grace of a high-wire walker, only to discover her talents are more suited to clowning around; in 'Winnie's Bubble Trouble' Winnie gets (literally) carried away in her attempt escape from doing the housework; in 'Winnie Digs Deep' Winnie hunts for priceless objects in her garden but finds out that Wilbur and Jerry are her real treasures; and in

'Winnie Goes Batty' Winnie is about to rustle up some batburgers in the kitchen when she discovers that bats are actually sweet little creatures and should certainly never be on the menu!

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!


Oxford's brand-new series of Winnie the Witch young fiction . . . is bound to be a winner.
