Winnie the Witch is ready for anything life throws at her! In 'Winnie's Awful Auntie' Winnie and Wilbur have to deal with an unbearably fussy relative on an unexpected visit; in 'Winnie Goes Cleaning' Winnie offers her janitorial services to the local school with hilarious results; in 'Winnie and the Ghost in the Post' Winnie and Wilbur find themselves the surprise winners of a television poetry competition and in 'Mini Winnie' there's an unusual solution to a laundry problem. Four crazily funny stories featuring everyone's favourite witch, her big black cat, Wilbur, and a zany supporting cast of new characters. Korky Paul's exuberant black line illustrations complement the humour, slapstick, and moments of real drama that run through each story. Pure magic!
Korky Paul was born in Zimbabwe and is one of seven children.

`[Praise for Winnie the Witch picture books]: Paul's artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged. ' The Guardian, Amazing Stories Supplement
