Product description

Vroom! Zoom! The carefree witch and her cat are flying through the wind on their broomstick – but lots of fuzzy friends would love to share their broom. ‘Is there room on the broom?’ they cry. ‘Yes’, says the big-hearted witch! What with a dog, a frog, a bird, a cat, one magical cauldron and one happy witch on board, there’s lots of fun and laughter on the broom – until it snaps! Oh no! They all land in a bog – and a hungry dragon appears! What now? Luckily, the animal friends have an ingenious way to save the day… Stuffed with marvellous characters, and perfect for Halloween, this magically energetic rhyming tale of friendship and sharing is a sweetly spooky treat.

“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

    I Think book is for toddlers,in my opinion. This book can help young learners to read and you will love this book like I did when I was younger. But now that I am older I still like to read it although I’m in My last year in primary School. But I have to say that the Book “Room on the Broom” helped me to learn to read (In my Opinion) And I hope it will do the same for you

    I got this book when I was a bit younger and thought it was quite good, would recommend to age group 3-5 yrs, although my mum loves it (because it rhymes, and she is a lot older) !

    This is a favourite book of mine and my children (3 year old boys). I got it for them when they were about 20 mths old and it is still read to them now.
