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. They climb on, one after the next, 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?
Another lovely story by Julia Donaldson, my 19-month-old daughter always chooses this book as one of her bedtime stories, and even though it's read every night, it's still a fun read for both of us! The illustrations by Axel Scheffler are brilliant too. We have given a few of these as gifts too and they are always gratefully received.
