It's just after midnight. Winnie has gone to bed and is snoring peacefully when Wilbur is woken by a strange noise. He goes downstairs to investigate and, to his horror, discovers a baby dragon squeezing through his cat-flap! Wilbur is not impressed by the scaly visitor, especially when it starts chasing him around Winnie's house. But the baby dragon just wants to play and, in his exuberance, manages to topple a grandfather clock and knock over a suit of armour. All the clattering wakes Winnie and she's not happy about a baby dragon in her house, either. After all, there are puffs of smoke coming out of his nose and he might start a fire. So Winnie uses a little magic to turn the smoke into ...a cloud of butterflies. This makes Wilbur feel better, he loves chasing butterflies! So now Winnie has a baby dragon and a cat who just want to play whereas she just wants to sleep! Winnie decides she's had enough of babysitting a dragon and goes onto the roof to look for his mother. But how will she catch the attention of a mother dragon flying past? - by magicking a full moon over her house! So with mother and baby dragon reunited, Winnie and Wilbur can finally settle down for an overdue good night's sleep.

Winnie the Witch, winner of the Children's Book AwardFrom School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—When a baby dragon hauls himself in through Winnie the witch's cat's door, smoky chaos ensues, and the mistress of the house must use her magic to control the situation in some unusual ways. Winnie and Wilbur find the baby dragon's mother and settle down for the night—just about the time the sun comes up. One of the best parts of this story is the juxtaposition of the text and illustrations. While Winnie is presented in a fairly straightforward manner in the text, she is much funnier in the illustrations. Her wiry hair is flying, her nightie is rumpled, and her socks and shoes most definitely do not match. Paul uses atmospheric purples and grays in Winnie's mostly black house, and there are fun details all over, including creepy portraits and spider webs. This is a fun addition where the earlier books are popular.—Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
