These smaller paperback books contain 4 short stories each, ever such good value at £3.99. Although my LO loves to look at the artwork in the bigger books. There is such detail in the illustrations and you notice new stuff all the time. We love Winnie and her long suffering sidekick cat Wilbur. In our house Winnie talks in a northern accent and my LO doesn't like it when CBeebies bedtime story is done in a completely different voice. "That's not Winnie" my LO says. Some of Winnie's phrases are classic, like "Oh, toads' bottom warts" or "Oh, blithering bats bottoms" or "oh, dimpled slugs bottoms". You can see a theme emerging, can't you.
In a nutshell, Winnie gets into terrible scrapes, goes on marvellous adventures and everything is a hilarious drama. She has a good heart but is a rubbish witch. Her cat Wilbur is the intelligent one of the duo. We buy each new book as soon as it comes out. They are witty and appeal to young and old unless you are devoid of humour.
One of the joys of transitional books, apart from giving a child something less daunting than a full sized novel to try, is that publishers are figuring out that children do not always want to abandon characters they loved from picture books. Here, the classic children's picture book character Winnie the Witch and her cat Wilbur, make the journey from full sized picture books to transitional books, and give children who love the character a more comfortable, familiar and enjoyable ride into the world of bigger books.
This book is split into four stories, all of which are short, silly and instantly recognisable as being in the same vein as the picture books. More continuity is provided by illustrations from Korky Paul who illustrated all the original Winnie picture books. Children will love these.
