Product Description

Review

Paul's artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged, stretching the simple story within reach of a wide age group. (The Guardian, Amazing Stories Supplement, October 2003)

Praise for Winnie's Midnight Dragon: 'Thomas's story is as deliciously fresh and funny as ever, the perfect foil to the drawings.

Book Description

Winnie's flying carpet was just what she had always wanted but then it flies off with her precious Wilbur and heads straight to a funfair... with Winnie in hot pursuit!

Format: Paperback
I'm sure many of us have been faced with the dilemma of trying to work out what exactly to say about that less than satisfactory,nay - truth be told - awful birthday present in the obligatory "Thank you" letter. That is the issue faced by Winnie the Witch", Valerie Thomas' loveable quirky character in this book.

Winnie has received a much longed for Flying Carpet for her birthday from her sisters, Wilma, Wanda and Wendy. As Winnie starts to put pen to paper, or more accurately finger to keyboard - she is a modern witch after all, to write her thank you, we see the disasters and comic events that Winnie and her cat Wilbur have faced. These are brilliantly told through Korky Paul's ever excellent illustrations and the author's eloquent and accessible way of telling a good yarn.
Fans of the series will know that for Winnie things tend to go wrong, and enjoy the humour as Winnie variously gets tangled in washing, falls into ponds and eventually consigns the carpet to a cupboard. Those new to Winnie books can enjoy the story too - this being a Winnie book the story is full of action and events and punctuated by the odd "Abracadabra!!" as Winnie gives the carpet one last chance, only to find that the carpet makes off with her cat and causes more trouble before she finally works out what exactly to do with her oh-so tricky gift.

As in other books of the series this book is a pleasure to read or, I am reliably informed, to be read to. The text is non-rhyming, and the language quite often simple but always engaging. The pictures that accompany the prose are full of all kinds of wonderful detail - we particularly like the scene where Winnie's cat encounters a roller coaster whilst on the carpet as it is just so funny.

My daughter loves Winnie books, and the stories in this one are as good as ever, but the Kindle format is awful. There is no traditional text, but the complete book is all graphics which do not display very well. The text is part of the graphics and is very difficult to read. If this was presented in a proper book format I'd give it 5 stars, but as it is, it will probably only get read once.

Love this book! Love reading it to my son too. The pictures are just fantastic - poor Wilbur's expression as he zooms around on the flying carpet is priceless!

Great book.

Winnie never disappoints, and again the illustrations are imaginitive and fun, and the story amusing enough to keep my four year old chuckling.
