Finding a Winnie the Witch book we haven't read before at the local library is always a treat as they seem to be hotly fought over by toddlers there.This book was a bit battered and worn but we checked it out anyway. It's Friday the 13th and Winnie's birthday, which means it's time to throw a huge party. With the aid of her magic wand, Winnie sets about creating a birthday to remember. 

Of course, the book would be a bit boring if everything ran smoothly, so with Wilbur in tow, Winnie's day turns out a little bit stranger than expected. 

Great book and has one of the best foldouts I think I've ever seen in a kid's book (which was probably the reason the library copy was a bit damaged - you'll see what I mean if you borrow it / buy it). 

Charlotte's best bit: Can't tell you that, it would spoil the surprise. Oh alright then, CAKE!

Daddy's favourite bit: Same as above
