Part of Crabtree Publishing Company's Tadpoles series, which provides structured tales for children who are just beginning to read on their own, The Lost Broomstick is the story of Tess, a little witch whose lost broomstick causes mischief wherever it goes. With a basic sentence on every two-page spread - there are forty-two words in the story, altogether - this is perhaps too elementary of a read for me to have truly enjoyed it. That said, with its very basic structure and its colorful artwork, I think it will work quite well for its intended audience. Recommended to young children who are just beginning to read on their own, and who enjoy magical stories. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0778705714, Library Binding)

Tess has lost her broomstick and she is NOT happy. Nobody else can fly it...but perhaps Cass the cat can help?The Tiddlers series features fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for children who are just starting to read.A word list at the beginning of the story allows for a quick check of the reader's ability to read and understand words before reading, and a puzzle at the end of the story encourages rereading for pleasure.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:06:10 -0400)

Although Tess's lost broomstick is found several times, no one can ride it except her--and, perhaps, her cat Cass.
