9780140302394: Gobbolino the Witch's Cat (A Puffin Book)

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. It's the charming tale of a cat born a witch's cat but who would much rather be a kitchen cat. 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 mysterious happenings such as the farmer's milk turning sour, and the orphanage children's gruel turning into chocolate! After many such adventures, Gobbolino finally finds the home of his dreams.

About the Author:

Ursula Moray Williams was born on 19 April 1911 at Petersfield, Hampshire, ten minutes after her twin sister, Barbara. She wrote and illustrated over sixty books for children with the most notable being Gobbolino the Witch's Cat and The Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate. After her husband's death in 1974, Ursula Moray Williams remained active, writing, gardening, giving talks and visiting her family in various parts of the world. She died in October 2006.

From AudioFile:

Poor Gobbolino! His mother was Graymalkin, the famous witch's cat, so naturally he's expected to be one, too. But he's different. Instead of green eyes, his are bright blue; instead of a jet black coat, his is tabby with one white boot; instead of being bad, he wants people to love him. In fact, he really wants only to sit by the fire, catch mice, watch the baby and be a kitchen cat. Nigel Lambert creates wild voices for each of the characters Gobbolino meets on his adventures, from the giddy and giggling, to the nasty and hissing. He breathes fresh life into a wonderful, old tale. P.E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
