Winnie and Wilbur: The Magic Wand (Paperback & CD), the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192749192. Winnie the Witch is getting ready for the Witches' Magic Show. She can't wait to show off her favourite spells with her magic wand. But when Winnie inadvertently puts her wand in the washing machine with her party dress it comes out crumpled, soggy, and certainly not in working order!
