Product description

The witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch's hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two! What will happen next as they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon?

By Sara Kew 29 Mar 2012 5

My kids just loved this book, they are 3 and 5. Julia Donaldson books are incredible. She has assisted my Daughter in really enjoying phonics and rhyming and making up her own. I also read to her pre-school class and they love her books, but this one is almost as good as Gruffalo. Her humour is awesome.

This is my favourite book and my three year old likes it too!

By Michelle Cameron 03 Aug 2011 5

This book is really delightful! All 3 of my children adore it, along with many other stories written by these talented authors. My 3 year old is easily scared by monsters & witches etc, but he is very comfortable with the "funny & silly witch" in this story. I'm sure this is one story we will definately remember reading when the kids are grown.

Fantastic rhyming book my boys really enjoy and the pictures are beautiful.

I love reading this book to my children! There are not many books I can say that about.
I buy this as a gift for other people's children as I enjoy it so much
