9780192732194: Winnie in Space. Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul

Winnie and Wilbur in Space, the new edition, is available on ISBN: 9780192748256. Winnie is fascinated by space and she decides the time is right for a little space exploration. Wilbur is not so sure. Winnie's magical rocket is quite tricky to steer through the universe and poor Wilbur can't even bear to look. He feels a little less anxious when they land on a faraway planet and Winnie unpacks their special space picnic. The inhabitants of the planet are small, with long ears and twitchy noses. They're curious and friendly but these space rabbits have rather strange eating habits - they munch on metal! And, for the space rabbits, Winnie's rocket is particularly tasty. So when it is nibbled clean away, Winnie has to use some quick thinking and some magic to keep the rabbits happy and to rustle up an alternative means of getting home. This glorious galactic picture book takes Winnie and Wilbur on an amazing journey into outer space. But however exciting flying saucers, shooting stars and space rabbits might be, Winnie's a witch who knows there's no place like home!

About the Author:

Valerie Thomas was born in Australia and has lived there for most of her life. Although she doesn't have a broomstick, she has travelled to most parts of the world, and she is now trying to organize her life so that she never has to experience another winter. She used to live with a big black
cat exactly like Wilbur. Korky Paul was born in Zimbabwe. He began his illustration career in Greece, working on a series of educational books. Prior to being published in the UK by Oxford University Press, he worked in advertising and studied film animation in California. His illustrated books have
won numerous awards, including the Children's Book Award on two occasions, and have been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award on three occasions. He now lives in Oxford with his wife and two children.

Review:

"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

"Praise for Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin: "Every page is an utter delight to pore over-there's so much going on, so much detail."

--TheBookbag
