Good Reads: to set mood for Halloween - Gobbolino, the Witch's Cat book, audiobook, song with notes

Multilingual Reads - great books that you can find translated in different languages!

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. Plus it is available as an audiobook in all those languages!

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.

  1. You have done really very very good work for children. I hope children will enjoy this book as well as they will enjoy Halloween. My little daughter like "The Missing Cat: Berlitz Kids Italian, Adventures with Nicholas Berlitz" very much.
