Winnie Flies Again

Winnie Flies Again

Written by Valerie Thomas

Illustrated by Korky Paul

Published by Oxford University Press

The great thing about being a witch is that you never have to take a driving test. But how about eye tests? Winnie finds out exactly why the skies seem filled with hazards, and flying on her broomstick with Wilbur means a hazardous journey every time. Charlotte shows no signs of getting bored with the Winnie Witch books which is just as well, because just when we think we've exhausted the library's secret stash of Winnie Witch books, we find another one hidden away. 

Great story and hats off to Korky Paul yet again for his scratchy and ever-so-detailed illustrations. A cracking tale, just don't forget your reading glasses!

Charlotte's best bit: Wilbur's twizzly tail after a near miss with a hang glider. 

Daddy's favourite bit: Plenty of "Fish who could wish" spottings.
