Book Overview

This fun family read-aloud is the perfect way to start Halloween celebrations and an ideal gift book. A sweet story of quick wits, friendship, and inclusivity from the creators of The Gruffalo! 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 helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on...

My toddler loves this book

We had a separate copy of this book and it was "lost." Decided to buy another used copy in excellent condition. It arrived as the UK version, but we didn't mind. My toddler loves this book. Have to read it to him at least 3 times. It is easy for me to read to him and the images are nice to look at you and to keep him entertained. Recommend to add to your child's book collection.

Make room for me!

This is just a perfect book for reading aloud. My children never tire of hearing the lyrical prose and I have read it in classrooms too with all eyes and ears glued to the words. Julia Donaldson has a way to make the book enticing to the child and still very enjoyable for the adult who reads it to them. The illustrations are beautiful too. I highly recommend this and in fact all of Julia's books.

Room on a Broom Excellent Fun!

Funny, that this is the first book my husband picks up every night to read to our daughter. He asked me to buy all of her books! He loves her style and the illustrations are excellent. My daughter loves this book and it is not scary at all! Buy this book and her others you will not be disappointed!

Room for one more?

What a fun book for Halloween or anytime! The book offers a gentle lesson in cooperation as the animals work together to rescue their friend. (It's a dirty job, but somebody had to do it--you'll see what I mean when you read the book.)The rhymes work well for reading aloud and the vividly colored illustrations are full of details that little children will want to look at again and again.For the most part the characters are smiling (except, of course, when the dragon tries to eat the witch). Even the youngest child will not feel threatened by either the characters or the plot.I have a feeling this is going to be the featured story at my Halloween story hours this year.

Such a fun and clever book!!!!

My girls, ages two and four, love this book and so do I! It's a clever rhyme and a sweet story that teaches a subtle lesson about how doing things for others can ultimately benefit oneself. I also appreciate how everything is not spelled out for the reader and there are some portions near the end that the child has to figure out. Very clever -- my favorite Halloween book this year. Nevertheless, this book is not Halloween-specific, and is definitely appropriate for any time of the year.
