Review quote

The story is in rhyme, bouncing merrily along, full of fun. The illustrations are witty and wonderful. The result is a surefire read-aloud hit. -School Library Journal The wart-nosed witch and her passengers make magic that is sure to please. Effective use of brilliant colors set against well-conceived backgrounds detail the story without need for text--but with it, the story--and the broom--take off. -Kirkus Reviews In this lightweight, witty story, helpful animals find room on the broom of a generous witch. -Publishers Weekly

This is another winning title from Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler. The story is funny, imaginative and rhythmic. My 26 month old daughter enjoys it. I would recommend that this book is purchased in board book format for little hands.show more
