Room on the Broom

Vroom! Zoom! A carefree witch and her faithful cat are flying through the wind on a broomstick – but lots of fuzzy friends would love to ride along. “Is there room on the broom?” “Yes!” cries the big-hearted witch! What with a dog, a frog, a bird, a cat, one cauldron and one witch on board, it’s a busy and bumpy ride on the broom – until it snaps in two! Oh no! They all land in a bog, and a hungry dragon appears. Can the witch’s grateful passengers save the day? This rhyming tale of friendship and sharing is a sweetly spooky treat.

“Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have come up with another gem… We loved it.” Independent
