Wizzil is bored. She has nothing to do and she NEEDS something to do. So she sets off down to Frimp Farm to annoy old DeWitt Frimp. She does this by turning herself into a fly. Soon things have got out of hand and she has turned herself into a glove to annoy him even further. When DeWitt finally realises that the glove is bewitched he dumps it in the river. But witches hate water and soon DeWitt has to come to her rescue - a rescue in more ways than one as Wizzil and DeWitt soon find that antagonism turns to romance. Illustrated with wit and effervescent energy by one of Britain's best loved illustrators, this lunatic and wonderful 'love' story is totally enchanting. "Brilliantly realised by Quentin Blake in his typically laugh-aloud illustrations." - "Independent". "William Steig, a wonderfully off-the-wall American writer is perfectly partnered by Quentin Blake in "Wizzil". - "Sunday Telegraph". "Knockabout humour and saucy surprises fill the pages of William Steig's "Wizzil". - "Junior Education".show more
