Why did I love this book?
You can not go wrong with Julia Donaldson – author of The Gruffalo (which, in my opinion, is one of the best children’s books of all time). Written in her trademark, hilarious, flawless rhyme, this book is an absolute joy. The story is about a witch and her cat flying on a broom, with three other animals asking if there is room on the broom for them. The witch obliges but the broom becomes overloaded and a bit of a catastrophe ensues. Readers will love the fun sounds and repetition, the wonderful, suspenseful plot, and the satisfying, rounded ending. Axel Scheffler’s bold and humorous art compliments the story perfectly. I highly recommend this book- and many others by this dynamic duo.
