Children's Literature
Winnie the Witch and her cat, Wilbur, have always traveled by broomstick. It is such a wonderful way to travel. But lately the sky has become so crowded that they bump into things, helicopters, hang gliders and tall buildings. Cute text and amusing illustrations fuel an endearing ride with this lovable pair, as Winnie uses her magic to change her broom into some strange and silly forms of transportation. All of her efforts end in comical disaster, leading us to one delightful conclusion. Each page is filled with full-color, zany illustrations and the layout changes during each scene, adding to the fun. There is even an abracadabra or two. This book will make you wonder just what is up there next time you gaze up at the sky. 2000, Kane/Miller Books, . Ages 7 to 12. Reviewer: Dia L. Michels

PreS-Gr 3-The skies are not friendly for Winnie the Witch, who flies on her broomstick into airplanes, hang gliders, and buildings. Determined to find a safer means of travel, she turns her broom into a bike (but a pond gets in her way), a skateboard (and collides with an ice-cream truck), and a horse (where did that low branch come from?). When she decides that walking is the only way to go, she falls down an open manhole. Exhausted, she wanders into a shop for some tea, only to discover that it is an eyeglass shop. Lucky for her, the saleslady sees her problem immediately and sells her a pair of spectacles. Paul's busy cartoons are packed with visual jokes, from the stirrups on Winnie's broomstick to the eye-patched pirate shopping for sunglasses with only one dark lens. The design is also clever: two illustrations of a tall tower require turning the book sideways, and a cross-section scene shows the street above and the tunnels below when Winnie falls through the manhole. Though Amy Hest's Baby Duck and the Bad Eyeglasses (Candlewick, 1996) is an excellent choice on this subject, Thomas's tongue-in-cheek humor will appeal to a wider audience.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, Eldersburg, MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
