About this deal

A story book I'll share as it think it's a wonderful story to be read aloud on a dark stormy bedtime! 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. While his sister Sootica learns how to ride a broomstick and turn mice into toads, Gobbolino sets out to find a family to care for him and a home of his own. While reading this, I thought about all the stray cats in the world, all the abandoned ones, the unwanted, the discarded furry creatures and I wished with all my heart that they find a place to settle, to curl in, by the fire with a warm milk or a blanket to comfort them, a loving family to love them forever. One kitten, Scootica, is black with green eyes (as is traditional for a witch's cat) wants to follow in her mother's footsteps and become apprenticed to a witch.

All he wants is to be a kitchen cat, but Gobbolino has many adventures in his journey before he finds the place where he belongs. The story revolves around Gobbolino’s adventures, but Gobbolino is no ordinary cat, he is a witch’s cat! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Born to a witch's cat, Gobbolino wants nothing more than to find a home amongst the warmth and bustle of a kitchen.rămâne la o familie care îl crede un pisoi normal, iar asta dă peste cap întreaga morală a poveștii. He is adopted by a sick princess, but when she is well again she leaves for boarding school without him, so he joins a Punch and Judy show as 'Toby the Dog', but a witch in the audience reveals him as a witch's cat. I love this story of a little cat who, though born to a witch's cat, just isn't cut out to be a witch's cat like his mother and sister.

Gobbolino by Ursula Moray Williams is the charming tale of a witch's cat who would rather be a kitchen cat. Travelling between such establishments as an orphanage, a Punch and Judy show, a princess's castle - will the black cat ever find somewhere he can settle and make his home? By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. I also think that the story missed a chance to give the message that you can be who you are, instead the moral seems to be change and be accepted, which seems a little sad to me.

This book has a bright orange cover that caught my eye and was about a cat with the most amazing name.
