Halloween is approaching and I have a great chapter book that would put your child into the Halloween mood! Gobbolino, the Witch's Cat is a children's novel written by Ursula Moray Williams, an English writer. It is translated into Italian, Spanish, German and Russian.
AGE: 5+ (younger children will enjoy it too). Great book for siblings - my 3 years old daughter enjoyed reading it with her 5 year old brother.
Gobbolino's mother is a black witch's cat. Gobbolino's kitten-sister, Sootica, is also a black cat. She wants to be a witch's cat just like her mother. Only Gobbolino, a kitten with blue eyes and one white paw, dreams to be a simple house cat, have a home with a fireplace and a family, who would love and care for him. Because of that, his cat-family abandons Gobbolino, and he embarks on the journey to find his dream home.
