Winnie, the Witch is tired of winter. She's tired of shivering in the cold and looking out at her garden covered in snow. So, she uses a little magic to bring summer and sunshine to her house. But just as she settles down in her deckchair, hordes of people arrive. With the unruly crowd comes noise and chaos. Maybe winter isn't so bad, after all?

This is my review of ‘Whinnie in winter’. I actually remember reading Winnie books in primary school myself, hence why I have chosen to review this book.

The book is about winter. Winne and her cat are fed up of winter, she ...more

Winnie is a witch and she has a lovely black cat named Wilbur. Winnie is not happy with having to wear all her winter gear so she performs a little magic. She finds that her magic solution was more trouble than it was worth. I loved the illustrations. They were excellent. Winnie was a funny looking witch!

Winne and her cat are fed up of winter, she waves her magic wand and suddenly the sun is shining. She is about to enjoy a relaxing time in the garden when a big stampede of people arrive in her garden to enjoy the sunshine too. Soon there are too many people in the garden that there isn’t any space for Winnie and her cat. She reverses the magic and enjoys a hot chocolate ...more

I used this book to prompt child-talk about seasonal changes, to tie-in with year 1 English and science lessons.
