Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler - Room on the Broom (New Paperback)
Room on The Broom is a British children's story book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which tells the story of a kind witch and her cat who invite three other animals to join them travelling on her broomstick.
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 will captivate children with Julia Donaldson's irresistible verse and Axel Scheffler's spectacular illustrations.

"Very funny" - The Children's Bookseller.
"Reading is just one of the things you can do with these. They are illustrated so very well with vibrant colours and end to end pictures that you have so much to explore if you introduce reading really young. I have copied some of the illustrations on to a A4 sheet given my daughter to colour. Just buy when it says Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler together on a book." - Google Review.
