We know that Winnie has a heart of gold. Why else would she decide to entertain her sisters, uncle, aunt, and cousin in her own home? Why else would she want to do her bit to reduce energy consumption and help save the world's wildlife in the process? Why else would she offer to give a frazzled mother a break and look after her fractious baby? But when it comes to the school sports' day, Winnie shows she can run and jump faster than anyone, even if that's because she's being chased by a swarm of angry bees!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!
