The Lovereading4Kids comment
Gobbolino is a cat who can do magic but, despite his family’s traditions, he doesn’t want to be a witch’s cat. All Gobbolino yearns for is to be a quiet, fireside, kitchen cat. But how can he find a home? Gobbolino’s search for the perfect home is a series of delightful adventures taking him from an orphanage to a palace, a sailing ship to a travelling Punch and Judy show. Everywhere that the home-seeking Gobbolino goes, he finds love and generosity – the very thing that he is searching for as a contrast to the cruelty of witches. The late, great Joan Aiken supplied a foreword.
One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.
Gobbolino, the Witch's Cat: Macmillan Classics Edition by Ursula Moray Williams
With his sparky whiskers and magic tricks, no one could mistake Gobbolino for a simple kitchen cat, but that's just what the witch's kitten wants to be. Instead of learning how to turn mice into toads for the witch's brew, Gobbolino sets out on an adventure to find a family and a home of his own.
Gobbolino has been delighting readers since 1942. With glorious illustrations by Catherine Rayner, a ribbon marker and a foreword by Joan Aiken, this beautiful hardback edition of Ursula Moray Williams's Gobbolino the Witch's Cat is a truly special gift to treasure.
