Room on the Broom is a fun story from Julia Donaldson. It’s a tale that sees a witch and her cat flying on their broomstick, but they are soon joined by three animals who must eventually band together to save the witch from a dragon.
Whoosh! Went the Witch is a sound board book based on this popular story, offering young readers a fun introduction thanks to the “whoosh” sound that little ones will enjoy pushing over (and over) again.
This board book asks “Who’s that flying over the treetops? Whoosh! It’s the witch and her cat.” It then asks “What else can you see? And who could this be…” as other animals join the witch on her broom. The brightly coloured illustrations, repetition in the story, and the interactive “whoosh” sound really bring the story to life, and make this a wonderful version of Room on the Broom for younger children.
Whoosh! Went the Witch is available for a recommended retail price of R145 from bookstores and online retailers.
