Room on the Broom: Book and CD

Vroom! Zoom! A carefree witch and her faithful cat are flying through the wind on a broomstick – and lots of fuzzy friends would love to hitch a lift. Is there room on the broom? “Yes!” cries the big-hearted witch! What with a dog, a frog, a bird, a cat, one cauldron and one witch on board, it’s a busy and bumpy ride on the broom – until it snaps in two! Oh no! Just as they all land in a bog, a scary dragon appears. Can the witch’s grateful passengers save the day? Listen along to the audio story CD as you enjoy this sweetly spooky rhyming favourite by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson.

“Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have come up with another gem… We loved it.” Independent

    This is an unforgetable tale of an old witch who has a broom and each time she lands a little animal asks: “Is there room on the broom for a thing like me”. I recommend this book for young readers aged 2-6
