Product description

Winnie the Witch lives in a black house with black chairs and black stairs, black floors and black doors. But Winnie’s cat, Wilbur, is black as well, and Winnie’s always tripping over him! Winnie decides that a little colour is just what Wilbur needs, so she turns him into a green cat. But when he wanders off into the grass outside, trouble soon follows. Can some rainbow-coloured magic save the day? The first fantastic tale starring hapless witch Winnie and her long-suffering cat Wilbur, this is a beautifully-crafted story with a colourful final twist.

    My 7 year old daughter read this to my 4 year old daughter and i must say all 3 of us loved it. The pictures are fantastic and the detail is incredible, it was well worth the money and has been re-read many a time since. My 4 year old has even made up her own stories to go along side the pictures which made this a multipurpose book which is even better.
