In Winnie Goes Wild! Winnie the Witch (who unlike Hermione is not the brightest witch of her age) tries to be a detective, does everything different for a day, wants to drink hot chocolate on a cold freezing day where the moths have eaten all her woollies, and goes lost in the jungle on her way to her sister Wendy’s exotic party. And as always she is accompanied everywhere by her black cat Wilbur.

It all wouldn’t be so bad if the dragon stopped ravaging the kitchen cabinets and fridge. And curtains. And the carpet. And the neighbour’s cats? Continue reading →
