Some of Minna Shaw's neighbours don't trust her clever broom. 'It's dangerous,' they say. But Minna appreciates the broom's help. She enjoys its quiet company. But one day two children get taught a well-deserved lesson by the broom. For her neighbours, this is proof of the broom's evil spirit. Minna is obligated to give up her dear companion. Chris Van Allsburg, master of the mysterious, brings this tale to life with moody and memorable pictures that will haunt readers long after the book's covers are closed - now in a new edition to celebrate this beloved book's twenty-fifth anniversary.

"...will evoke pleasurable shudders..." Publishers Weekly

"...Althought not strictly for Halloween, may turn out to be as much a part of that holiday as Polar Express is of Christmas." School Library Journal
