Description

Pongwiffy, a witch of very dirty habits, is slumming it as usual in her filthy hovel, Number One, Dump Edge, Witchway Wood. But all is not well with Pongwiffy. It is slowly dawning on her that a witch cannot live on greasy skunk stew, limitless supplies from Sugary Candy's, the local sweet shop, and the minimum of exercise alone. Pongwiffy's teeth, stomach and general body parts are crying out for some healthy care and attention. It is time to take action. It is time to get healthy. And Pongwiffy is determined to take not only her fellow witches, but all the residents of Witchway Wood with her. There is only one thing for it: the greatest sporting event to happen in Witchway Wood - the O'Lumpicks! A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.show more

Review quote

'Brought roars of both delight and disgust ... an ebulliently uninhibited farce' Guardian 'As appealing as Horrid Henry crossed with Winnie the Witch' The Times 'Back On Track has all the unsavoury ingredients of the others: enjoyable-terrible jokes, off-the-wall characters, and a rollicking storyline - all held together by our dentally-challenged, slovenly, binge-eating, lovable heroine ... The joy of the book is Umansky's exuberant language - the Pratchett-like playfulness of her world building and those appalling puns!' Junior Education Plus 'Young readers adore the jokes and the grubbiness' Daily Telegraphshow more
