Winnie the Witch is a modern classic in the world of picture books. In it we meet Winnie who lives in a big black house in the forest. A house that she shares with her big black cat, Wilbur. And that, so the story goes, is how the trouble begins. Whenever Wilbur curls up on a black chair or the black carpet, Winnie either sits on him or takes a tumble. This has got to stop! So Winnie uses her magic wand to change Wilbur's colour. But this leads to a different kind of problem: poor Wilbur doesn't like his multi-coloured fur and climbs up a tree, feeling very sorry for himself. Then Winnie has a wonderful idea that will stop the accidents and keep Wilbur happy. She waves her magic wand with spectacular and colourful results. She's funny, she makes mistakes, she's the world's most entertaining witch! Celebrate 25 years of Winnie and her cat Wilbur with our special anniversary edition. This edition includes an audio CD with a narration of the story accompanied by magical music and sound effects.
