Room on the Broom
Julia Donaldson

A witch and her cat are happily flying through the air until a gust of wind blows her hat, bow and wand away. Luckily a dog, bird and frog retrieve them for her. In return they’d love to take a ride on the witch’s broomstick, but how long until that broom inevitably snaps in two? Especially with a hungry dragon waiting on the ground…

This children’s book is ideal to set the mood for Halloween season, complete with clever rhymes and wonderful illustrations. The story has been adapted into a short film as well as a play.
