Praise on Goodreads

Who doesn’t like reading books about magic and witches? Especially if they describe adventures of the adored Winnie the Witch and her cat Wilbur.

Winnie the Witch is one of my favourite childhood stories.

This book is filled with glorious detailed images, fantasy, and wild excitement and bursting at the seams with laughter. A magical read.

So cute!!! My affection is fueled, no doubt, by my empathy in sharing a home with a black cat and nearly sitting/tripping on/losing said cat around the house in the dark.

Funny, well-loved story with great illustrations.

Winnie the Witch is a delightful character, and the illustrations are simply wonderful.
