A tiny black kitten sneaks out of the house one day, while his witch is napping, and takes off on her broom. His lack of control is immediately apparent, as he goes careening into bushes and trees (giving a raccoon and squirrel a very unexpected ride!), upsetting milking maids and fishing lads, before being set upon by a very determined hawk. Fortunately, the kitten's witch manages, with the help of a friend, to overtake him just in time...

First published in 1973, The Witch Kitten is an entirely wordless picture-book, something of which I was unaware, when I requested it from the library. The illustrations, which look to be done in pencil, use a simple black, green and orange palette. Although they convey the story quite well, I cannot say, all told, that they were really to my taste. Given that this is a wordless picture-book, that's a pretty big stumbling block to enjoyment. Still, those who appreciate wordless picture-books, or are particularly enamored of tales of witches and their cats, may want to take a look at this one. ( )
