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. One after the ntex climbs on, 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?This classic picture book is now available in a beautiful, limited edition slipcase.

My 2.5 / 3yo son loves this book! He is currently fascinated by witches and ghosts. Not too scary, and focuses on the notion of being helpers for your friends.

Aww! This is the sweetest witchy picture book I have ever read. A fun story of friendship and bravery. This is a great choice for kids who need a pick-me-up about conquering bullies, without the didacticism common in more mundane picture books.
