Winnie Under the Sea

Poor Wilbur! Winnie’s off on a madcap trip to the seaside, and she’s dragging her fluffy accomplice along. But Wilbur’s not too keen on getting his paws wet, until… ABRACADABRA! Winnie turns him into a catfish to show him the dazzling world beneath the waves. Winnie turns herself into an octopus, too, and soon they’re having a whale of a time! But then Winnie drops her wand, and it sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Will they be stranded under the sea forever? In Winnie’s latest hysterical picture book escapade, Korky Paul’s zany and colourful illustrations bring the undersea world and all its creatures to sparkling, rainbow-bright life.

“Paul’s artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged, stretching the simple story within reach of a wide age group.” Guardian
