Illustrated by Axel Scheffler
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?
Room on the Broom is a very funny story of quick wits and friendship and is perfect for reading aloud. Children will be captivated by Julia Donaldson's irresistible verse and Axel Scheffler's spectacular illustrations.
