Valerie Thomas

  • 5 stars across 75 books
    After writing Winnie the Witch, Valerie Thomas has taken Winnie on all kinds of adventures - on her broomstick and a flying carpet, with a baby dragon and a giant pumpkin, under the sea and even into outer space! Valerie, who lives in Australia, doesn't own a broomstick herself, but she has travelled to most parts of the world. Korky Paul, born in Zimbabwe, is a well-known illustrator. His drawings appear in more than 25 Winnie books, as well as many other poetry anthologies and picture books. Known only to himself as 'the world's greatest portrait artist', Korky visits schools to promote his passion for drawing. He lives in Oxford with his wife.
