Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie Shapes Up, the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192748416. Winnie knows she needs to shape up. In 'Ssshh! Winnie' Winnie takes part in a sponsored silence and, although she can't stop herself talking, her stories keep the little ordinaries completely quiet for hours on end; in 'Flipping Winnie' Winnie enters a pancake race in the village fete with hilarious consequences; in 'Where's Winnie?' she can't work out how to programme her broomstick navigation system and ends up being kidnapped by aliens; and in 'Winnie Shapes Up' she causes chaos in the local gym-when the weights become weightless and the swimmers discover they're sharing their pool with a shark! 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!
