Pongwiffy is very, very bored. It is raining, and she has nothing to do. Pongwiffy is a witch of action who hates being cooped up. Her idea of a good day is to be out and about, swapping gossip and recipes and inviting herself to tea. But the incessant rain has put a stop to all that.
Pongwiffy decides the witches need some sort of excitement. And what better than a holiday? It is the matter of a moment for Pongwiffy to take the coven's much treasured funds and blow them all on a trip to the ever popular holiday destination Sludgehaven-on-Sea. Which is precisely when the trouble starts.
A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.
Would you consider the audio edition of Pongwiffy and the Holiday of Doom to be better than the print version?
Both are equally as enjoyable. I love Prunella Scales as the narrator but Chris Smedley has some amazing illustrations in the print version.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Has to be Pongwiffy! Without a doubt!
Which scene was your favorite?
All scenes between Pongwiffy and Scott Sinister. I don't think he will ever escape her clutches.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! And I did!
Any additional comments?
My favourite childhood series. These books gave me such joy in primary school.
