Winnie the Witch is very pleased with her new computer. She decides to throw away her book of spells and her wand-from now on all her magic will be at the click of a mouse! When Wilbur tries to pounce on the mouse, things start to go wrong. Winnie wakes up to discover she has no cat . . . and no computer. She could really use a little magic but just where is it going to come from? This is a hilarious Winnie story for the digital age!
