Product Description

About the Author

Kaye Umansky was born in Plymouth in Devon, England. She went to Teacher's Training College, after which she taught in London primary schools for twelve years, specializing in music and drama. In her spare time, she sang and played keyboards with a semiprofessional soul band.
She now writes full time and has written more than twenty-five books of fantasy, fiction, and poetry for children. She draws on traditional folktales and modern urban myths for her inspiration and has a sense of humor that is popular with children of all ages, from five to one hundred and five. She lives in London with her family.
Among her most popular books are her hilarious Pongwiffy titles. Pongwiffy, Pongwiffy and the Goblins' Revenge, and Pongwiffy and the Spell of the Year, which won the Nottinghamshire Book Award, are available from Minstrel Books. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This book is thoroughly enjoyable and makes you crave more of this comic witch and all her friends. Even though the stories are aimed at children, this book has elements and language which will amuse many older readers - similar to that in the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett. With voices that jump out of the book at you, they make the characters more realistic and interesting. Kate Umansky is a great writer and once you've read one Pongwiffy novel you'll always come back for more.

When I first read Pongwiffy when I was 9, I would go to bed early just so that my mum would be able to read an extra chapter before I'd fall asleep. Exellent no childhood would be worth complete without it!
