Winnie the Witch

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 story starring hapless witch Winnie and her long-suffering cat has a multi-coloured twist in its tail!
