Description

Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie Takes the Plunge, the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192748409. Winnie is not afraid of taking the plunge. In 'Winnie's Mouse Organ' Winnie discovers that the little rodents who share her house have undiscovered musical talents; in 'Winnie's Snowball' Winnie unwittingly magics a snowman into the rather dangerous 'abominable' variety; in 'Winnie's Giant Party' Winnie helps Jerry, her giant next-door neighbour, to get into the party mood; and in 'Winnie Takes the Plunge' disaster strikes when Winnie gets flushed down her loo and ends up trapped by a merman under the ocean waves until Wilbur stages a bold rescue. 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!show more
