Commotion in the castle with Winnie and Wilbur!
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'.
