Favourite Book

Room on the Broom

Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Donaldson and Schefflers story and illustrations work again extremely well together to capture children's attention right from the start of the book. Just like "The Gruffalo" and "The smartest giant in town" this is a fantastic book and it cannot be recommend enough.

It is the story of a good-natured witch and her contented, purring, cat flying through the air on a broomstick without a care in the world - until the wind blows away the witch's hat. When they fly down to retrieve the hat, a polite, helpful dog brings it to them and becomes another passenger on the broom. Troughout the book they also pick up a bird and a frog, making the broom very overcrowded. Then disaster strikes; the broom snaps in two causing the witch to become separated from her friends and a potential meal to a large red dragon.

This is an extremely eye catching and appealing book aimed at preschool and lower primary school children. The use of illustration mixed through the large, bold, font makes it seem friendly to a beginner reader. But this is essentially a book for sharing, the use of repetition throughout the story encourages children to join in the reading and the book appeals to their sense of humour with comical allusions: "I'm planning to have WITCH AND CHIPS for my tea". A song accompanies the book that children ca enjoy singing and performing to.
