Product description

Winnie’s the wackiest witch you’ll ever meet, and she’s not afraid to take the plunge! It’s just a shame that poor Wilbur the cat is not quite so keen on getting wet! In this fantastic book containing four more stories, Winnie discovers that the tiny mice who share her house have undiscovered musical talents, and has a terribly chilly adventure when she accidentally turns a snowman into the rather dangerous ‘abominable’ variety. She helps her giant next-door neighbour to get into the party mood for a celebration – and tumbles head-first into disaster when she gets flushed down her loo and is trapped by a merman under the ocean waves! Can Wilbur stage a bold rescue? Find out in a book packed with rib-tickling laughs and Korky Paul’s exuberant line illustrations. It’s another Winnie wonder!

This book contains four original short stories: Winnie’s Mouse Organ; Winnie’s Snowball; Winnie’s Giant Party and Winnie Takes the Plunge.

    winnie takes the plunge

    I bought this book for my 4 year old granddaughter from a book club leaflet and was really dissapointed at the format. She loves to look at the beautifully detailed coloured illustration. I feel that this format is far too old for the child who this book would appeal too.

    This book is not for me but it might be for other people. It’s about the witch called Winnie who is invited to a party but discovers her friend who is the giant is not invited. She helps him like other people but this book is sooooo boring!!!!
