Winnie the Witch by Valerie Thomas

Reading Level: Ages 4-8

Winnie the witch has a problem. She lives in a biiiiiiiiig black house with black everything. The floors are black, the walls are black, the furniture is black, even her bathtub is black. Winnie loves the color black.

Like most witches, Winnie also has a black cat. His name is Wilbur. Winnie loves her cat Wilbur. There's just one problem...

When Wilbur is awake, she can see him just fine. When Wilbur is asleep and his eyes are closed, Winnie cannot... and she is always tripping over him.

So Winnie turns him green. But that doesn't work out at all either. Neither does the next color. Or the next. Finally, Winnie waves her wand at Wilbur and turns him into a five-colored rainbow cat! Let's see him blend in to anything now!, she thinks.

But poor Wilbur is miserable, embarrassed that he looks so absolutely ridiculous. And Winnie doesn't want her poor cat, her best friend who she loves more than anything in the whole world, to be sad. What on earth will she do in order to stop tripping over him?

Winnie the Witch is a delightful character, and the illustrations are simply wonderful.
