But hoo the witch peenged And the cat fuffed and aw When the wind wis sae wild That the hat blew awa. 'Doon!' cried the witch, And they fleed tae the grund. They riped and they reenged But nae hat could be fund. Then oot fae the bushes (and this is the truth) There breeshled a dug Wi the hat in his mooth...Room on the Broom is probably Julia Donaldson's best-loved picture book after The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child. Following the huge success of these two titles in their Scots language versions, Room on the Broom in Scots is sure to be another big hit with Scottish mums, dads and bairns.
