This is an excellent book, even if a little short.
There are four all-new Winnie the Witch stories in here:
* Winnie's Wet Weekend
* Jurassic Winnie
* A Wedding for Winnie
* Nitty Winnie
The first story sees Winnie having a flooded house so she escapes to a beach where she builds a sandcastle and magics herself to live in it. The second story sees Winnie magic her way back to when dinosaurs were around. The third sees Winnie marry off her sister, and the fourth sees Winnie get nits.
All the stories interestingly start with sounds ("Plip! Plop!", "Snip-snap!", "Bing-bong!" and "La-di-tiddly-doo-daa!") and there is a real quirky use of language throughout. Like the alarm clock being called the alarm croc, or Winnie exclaiming "flying fish fingers" or "you look as lovely as a little lamb licking a lolly."
There are also lots of busy, interesting pictures to accompany the text which are just as quirky. However the book is just about 45 minutes in length, but this is probably more to do with the age group this is aimed at (newly confident readers).
The whole package is perfect for youngsters who have a sense of humour.
