Winnie the Witch decides to make her dream of visiting space a reality and with her magic wand and several abracadabras creates a splendid spaceship. She and her long-suffering cat Wilbur (and a well stocked picnic basket) set off for a visit to the planets. Along the way they meet up with metal eating space rabbits and Winnie has to do some extra special magic to ensure she and Wilbur return home safely.
This new adventure will be enjoyed by all Winnie and Wilbur fans. As usual the text and illustrations sit well together with lots of visual and written jokes. Children who are interested in space might also enjoy visiting the different planets and being helped to remember them in their correct order. Lively, busy illustrations provide lots to find in the pictures. I particularly liked the washing line attached to space ship.
