Gobbolino the Witch's Cat

book | 1942
World → Pan Macmillan
First published in the 1940s, the story of Gobbolino the witch's cat with one white paw and bright blue eyes, has been delighting generations of young readers.

Gobbolino doesn’t want to be a witch’s cat. He wants to be an ordinary kitchen cat, and sit by the fire, catch mice and watch the baby. So 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.

But Gobbolino is mistrusted wherever he goes, and blamed for myterious happenings such as the farmer's milk turning sour, and the orphanage children's gruel turning into chocolate!

Will Gobbolino ever find the home of his dreams?
