Wobble had once been a friendly and contented little witch's cat - the perfect familiar for the motherly Maggie. But when Maggie brought home a new broom, and Wobble fell off - thereby earning the ridicule of his peers - his attitude changed, and he became a real crosspatch! What good was a witch's cat, if he couldn't ride a broom?, mused Wobble, who grew more and more discontented, as Halloween drew near. Finally, unable to stand the idea of falling off again, Wobble got rid of Maggie's broom! Would that be the end of their Halloween flight? Or would Maggie find another way to fly...?

Wobble the Witch Cat is a sweet little Halloween story from Mary Calhoun, who has explored the witchy "experience" in other titles, like The Witch of Hissing Hill, and The Witch Who Lost Her Shadow. The illustrations, which have a vintage 1950s feeling (a little bit "scratchy," only a few colors, in those scenes which have color), are done by Roger Duvoisin, whose picture-books - Petunia, Veronica - are considered classics of the genre. All in all, this is just a gentle little tale, perfect for younger readers looking for Halloween tales with minimal scares. ( )
