"The story is in rhyme, bouncing merrily along, full of fun. The illustrations are witty and wonderful. The result is a surefire read-aloud hit." -School Library Journal "The wart-nosed witch and her passengers make magic that is sure to please. Effective use of brilliant colors set against well-conceived backgrounds detail the story without need for text--but with it, the story--and the broom--take off." -Kirkus Reviews "In this lightweight, witty story, helpful animals find "room on the broom" of a generous witch." -Publishers Weekly
