About this deal

Instead, he longs to be an ordinary kitchen cat that spends his time sitting by the fire and catching mice for his mistress. Una however loved it and summed up the plot to Martin "It's about a cat and he just wants to be a kitchen cat but it isn't fair because nobody understands him. He will find some people to live with, and all goes well, until they discover he is a witch's cat and will chase him out and on to the next chapter where the exact same thing will happen with some new people.

Like many good children's tales, the story of Gobbolino will give younger readers cheers and make them wonder. rămâne la o familie care îl crede un pisoi normal, iar asta dă peste cap întreaga morală a poveștii. First published in the 1940s, the story of Gobbolino the witch's cat with one white paw and bright blue eyes, has been delighting generations of young readers. What made most of this story fun to read was the somewhere-inbetween-ness of Gobbolino, the kind-hearted witch's cat with blue eyes and one white paw.First published in 1942, Gobbolino the Witch's Cat continues to delight children - a true modern classic. A perfect story for A Puffin Book with charming black and white illustrations by the author, Ursula Moray Williams.

I bought this book so that I could read it to my children, and hope that they would love it as much as I did as a child. The story may be 75 years old now, but the style shouldn't put off readers/listeners, the language is readable and moves along nicely. Câte persoane nu au și acum de pătimit din cauza culorii pielii, a familiei din care provin sau a locului în care s-au născut? It’s a good read-aloud book and my kids couldn’t wait to find out where Gobbolino might end up next.so how come all the people who met him didn't realise straight away what he was since normal cats can't talk to humans? She said she enjoyed the book but it's not one that I enjoyed all that much, the repetitive format began to pall a bit. He has many adventures along the way and makes many friends, until he finally finds the home he dreams of. A knight finds him and gives him to a lady as a gift, but when Gobbolino tries to help the knight win over the Lady, he only causes more trouble.

A witch's kitten who wants to be good and be a nice family's kitchen cat, but never quite gets it right. So, while his sister Sootica learns how to ride a broomstick and turn mice into toads, Gobbolino sets off to find a nice warm fire and a family to care for him. Whether this is because the author's skill improved in the four years between the two books or because cats are easier to anthropomorphize than wooden toys, is a matter for debate. This book has a bright orange cover that caught my eye and was about a cat with the most amazing name.With lots of fairly short episodes, it will make a good bedtime series for several nights, and even lead to discussions about differing beliefs, about witches and treating others with kindness. But Gobbolino is mistrusted wherever he goes, and blamed for myterious happenings such as the farmer's milk turning sour, and the orphanage children's gruel turning into chocolate! Reissued for its seventy-fifth anniversary with illustrations by the award-winning Catherine Rayner, this classic tale has been loved by generations of children.

The story started on a dark and cloudy night, when Gobbolino found himself the odd one out amongst witch's kittens - he had one white paw, blue (not green) eyes, and a hint of tabby on his coat.Blessed with some magic, Gobbolino is able to use this to his advantage at times, but superstition follows him wherever he goes. A class activity could include listing the different characters in the book and then drawing pictures of them. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate. By conforming Gobbolino, Williams asked the reader to accept the world (which is often judgemental, cruel, black-and-white) that he lived in, rather than Gobbolino himself.
