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 thoughtful animals — a dog, a parrot, and a frog — find the missing items, and all they want in return for their help is a ride on the broom.
But the witch's broom is not meant for so many to ride at once, and a sudden crash puts the witch right in the path of a hungry dragon! Fortunately, her three new friends come up with a clever solution to protect her — and in return, the witch magics up a new item to ride that will have room for them all. 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.
"A witch and her happily purring cat fly through the wind on their broomstick, without a care in the world, until the witch's black hat blows away. In the process of retrieving it, they pick up another passenger, a polite and helpful dog. All goes well until the witch's hair bow flies off. And then her wand. And then real disaster strikes — in the shape of a big red dragon, a broken broom, and some very important (but notably absent) friends.... Readers will especially love the final illustration, in which our heroes solve their space problems once and for all." — Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com Reviews
