Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. Tired of the cold, wet, and tiresome winter, Winnie the witch magics her dormant garden into a summer spot. To her chagrin, the flowers bloom and quickly wither, and the hibernating animals are cross about being prematurely awakened. Worst of all, Winnie's neighbors-an astonishing assortment of people, ghosts, ghoulies, and animals-all crowd into her haven to take advantage of the warm weather. Chaos reigns until the furious Winnie puts winter in its rightful place. While the theme of leaving nature alone is apparent, the five double-page spreads devoted to the "horrible" invasion of Winnie's property give visual weight to the joys of privacy. Scratchy lines portray the interiors of the witch's house with lively detail, and a full palette decorates the wintry landscape. 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 and enliven an average text. A secondary purchase for collections needing more books about the perils of messing with Mother Nature or overstepping magical powers.?Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA

Format: Paperback
Fantastic how both illustrator and author can put so much heart and detail into a childrens book. Great story; not one of those nonsensical ones that flood the market today. A delight for both parent and child. So much to see and discover on every page. And during the next read one spots yet another little detail.
It's difficult to take a strangers recommendation, but this book is great (as is Winnie The Witch).

Winnie books are all so entertaining. My six yr.old grandaughter loves them. We started reading them before she was five. The illustrations are detailed and beautifully done.. It's just great fun to look for all the little drawings that make up Winnie's home and places she visits..
