Description


This fun family read-aloud is a story of quick wits and friendship from the creators of The Gruffalo! Perfect for the changing seasons and a great way to celebrate Halloween.

The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch's hat, then her bow, and then her wand!  Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom.  But is there room on the broom for so many friends?  And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are the creators of many beloved picture books including The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child, The Snail and the Whale, and The Spiffiest Giant in Town.

This tale will grab you, get under your fingernails and not let go so vivid are these 3 friends on a harrowing journey to save themselves. Ripped from the headlines, and extraordinary in its depiction of KIDS running from their country’s violence, depredation and hopelessness, the sometimes unspeakable events are also tempered with the hope and humanity of kind people along the way. Traveling from Honduras to the promised land of the US’s freedom and justice system, your eyes will be opened and your heart will plead for our nation to SEE these children and treat them with compassion.
