Winnie the Witch Series

by ,
(136 reviews)

Meet Winnie, the absent-minded witch and her long-suffering cat, Wilbur: Winnie and Wilbur live in a house full of magic, where crazy adventures are just around the corner. Accident-prone Winnie drags the bemused but loyal Wilbur on madcap escapades involving flying carpets, gigantic pumpkins, trips to outer space and of course plenty of broomstick rides. Dressed in her trademark stripy stockings, Winnie casts spells that create fun and chaos wherever she goes in these hilarious stories.
 
Children’s books about witches have always been popular and Winnie has to be the silliest witch there is. Kids love the funny scrapes that Winnie gets herself into with Wilbur in tow as well as the exuberant illustrations that bring the stories to life. 
 
Created by author Valerie Thomas and illustrator Korky Paul in 1987, the Winnie and Wilbur books won the Children’s Book Award in 1988. Following on from the success of the picture books, a series of young fiction books about Winnie and Wilbur’s adventures was added, written by Laura Owen, to help young Winnie fans with their reading journey. After selling over 7 million copies worldwide, the Winnie the Witch books were relaunched as Winnie and Wilbur in 2016, before coming to the TV with a popular animated series on Channel 5’s Milkshake.  You can find more Winnie the Witch fun on YouTube, including sing a long songs.

If you love witch books, silly humour or spellbinding illustrations, this series is for you. Pre-schoolers and young readers will love the picture books, packed full of fun details such as the frog Winnie always keeps in her pocket. For children 5 and over, the young fiction and early readers are perfect for independent reading and you can read them in any order. 

Fans will also love the Winnie the Witch collections which pack even more wacky adventures into one volume. You can also discover lots of great Winnie the Witch resources for the home and classroom on the website including drawing, activities, dressing up and lesson plans for teachers. The Winnie and Wilbur fun never stops!
