Winnie and Wilbur are taking part in the local witches' sports day. After training hard in their garden, finally the big day arrives. There is a high jump contest, an egg-and-spoon race, and even a cats' tree climb race - but the main event is the exciting broomstick obstacle race. Winnie and Wilbur are desperate to finally win it this year having lost out to Maryam and her cat Malak the last two years. But when the referee is about to read out the results, a gust of wind blows them away! Will the witches ever find out who won - or could they discover that perhaps it doesn't matter who won when you're having this much fun?

Author Valerie Thomas

Illustrator Korky Paul

Since creating her characters Winnie and Wilbur in 1987, Valerie Thomas has taken them on all kinds of adventures: on a broomstick and a flying carpet, with a baby dragon and a big bad robot, in a haunted house and aboard a pirate ship, under the sea and even into outer space! Valerie, who lives in Australia, doesn't own a broomstick herself, but she has travelled to most parts of the world. Born in Zimbabwe, Korky Paul is a well-known illustrator. His drawings appear in more than fifty Winnie and Wilbur books, as well as many other titles. Known only to himself as 'the world's greatest portrait artist', Korky regularly visits schools and appears at festivals to promote his passion for drawing. He lives in Oxford with his wife where he regularly cooks on the 'braai'.
