"Why was I ever born a witch's kitten? Why - oh, why?" With his bright blue eyes and sparky magic whiskers, no one could mistake Gobbolino for a kitchen cat, but that's just what he longs to be. So, while his sister Sootica learns how to ride a broomstick and turn mice into toads, Gobbolino sets off to find a nice warm fire and a family to care for him. He has many adventures along the way and makes many friends, until he finally finds the home he dreams of. First published in 1942, Gobbolino the Witch's Cat continues to delight children - a true modern classic.

About the Author:

Ursual Moray Williams (1911-) was born in Petersfield. She started writing soon after she was married and began work on Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse, perhaps her most famous work, while expecting her first child. Gobbolino the Witch's Cat followed, and the two characters were later brought together in The Further Adventures of Gobbolino and the Little Wooden Horse. Now aged 89, Ursula Moray Williams lives in Gloucestershire. Paul Howard studied at Leicester Polytechnic where he gained a first-class Honours Degree in Graphics. He has illustrated many successful children's titles, including Walker's Classic Poetry collection, and A Year in the City, winner of the Primary English Book Award. His recent picture book interpretation of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark (Egmont), has been highly acclaimed. Paul Howard lives in Belfast.

From AudioFile:

Poor Gobbolino! His mother was Graymalkin, the famous witch's cat, so naturally he's expected to be one, too. But he's different. Instead of green eyes, his are bright blue; instead of a jet black coat, his is tabby with one white boot; instead of being bad, he wants people to love him. In fact, he really wants only to sit by the fire, catch mice, watch the baby and be a kitchen cat. Nigel Lambert creates wild voices for each of the characters Gobbolino meets on his adventures, from the giddy and giggling, to the nasty and hissing. He breathes fresh life into a wonderful, old tale. P.E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
