Description

Winnie the Witch and Wilbur, her cat, are both tired of winter. The garden is covered in snow, the pond is covered in ice, icicles hang from the rooftop. Wilbur's feet are wet and his whiskers are frozen. So, Winnie casts a spell from her big book of spells and turns everything into summer. But that's her big mistake.... All over the garden little animals wake up and flowers begin to grow. Crowds of people arrive to enjoy the sunshine, and soon there is no room for Winnie and Wilbur in the garden. So out on the porch, with an imperious stomp, Winnie shuts her eyes, waves her wand five times, and shouts ABRACADABRA! As the sun disappears and the snow begins to fall, Winnie and Wilbur go back inside, having decided that "Winter is lovely too." The award-winning team of Korky Paul and Valerie Thomas has delivered a delightful and witty tale that is sure to be a child's favorite.show more

A host of animals, including the witch's eccentric cat, Wilbur, along with kibitzing snowmen and other visual jokes, add child-pleasing humor to the pages."--School Library Journal"Fans of the irrepressible, willful Winnie will love this one, along with the rest of us!"--Yellow Brick Road"Wacky and witty, this is a wonderfully consoling book for long winter evenings."--Kids Out"A hugely entertaining story with bright double page pictures."--The Independent on Sunday "Scratchy lines portray the interiors of the witch's house with lively detail, and a full palette decorates the wintry landscape.
