Summary
This fun family read-aloud is perfect for the changing seasons and a great way to celebrate Halloween!

The witch and her cat couldn't be happier, flying through the sky on their broomstick-until the witch drops her hat, then her bow, then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items and all they want in return is a ride on the broomstick. But is there room on the broom for so many new friends? And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from the clutches of a hungry dragon?

From the acclaimed creators of The Gruffalo , this enchanting story of quick wits and friendship is full of humor and adventure-and just the right amount of spookiness.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5-8. Here's a winsome witch: she has a huge nose with a wart but a friendly smile, and her long ginger hair is tied in a polka-dot bow. The wind blows her witch's hat off, and a dog brings it to her and asks if there is room on the broom "for a dog like me." Off they go, but the wind takes the bow in her braid; it is brought back by a green bird, who also asks if there is room on the broom. A storm wrests away the witch's wand; a frog returns it and clambers aboard, too. The witch's broomstick breaks, and she is captured and about to be turned into a dragon's supper, when she is rescued by a four-headed, feathered, and furred monstrous creature. The "monster" is, of course, the witch's new companions and her cat, all ready to help a friend. The rhythm and rhyme are lively and quick, and the pictures partake equally of silly and spooky. The bright red, toothy dragon is particularly impressive. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this lightweight, witty story, helpful animals find "room on the broom" of a generous witch. At first, a striped cat accompanies the cheerful sorceress: "How the cat purred/ and how the witch grinned,/ As they sat on their broomstick/ and flew through the wind." Next, a spotted dog retrieves the witch's flyaway black hat and asks to come aboard. The three riders soon welcome a green parrot (who finds the witch's lost hair ribbon) and a frog (who rescues her wand from the bottom of a pond). When threatened by a dragon, the loyal animals form a "Brementown Musicians" chimera whose "terrible voice,/ when it started to speak,/ was a yowl and a growl/ and a croak and a shriek." The witch repays them by conjuring a cushier vehicle. Donaldson and Scheffler, previously paired for The Gruffalo, emphasize the airborne animals' contentment and evoke sympathy for the broom's driver. In Scheffler's comical panels and insets, the witch has a warty nose and lace-up boots, but wears a pleasant smile; Donaldson puts a spooky/silly spin on the folktale format. The metrical rhyme and goofy suspense aren't groundbreaking, but readers will likely find it refreshing to see a witch playing against type. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
