12,00

Gobbolino’s mother was a witch’s cat, so naturally little Gobbolino was expected to be one as well. But who ever heard of a witch’s cat with blue eyes and one white paw, who preferred sitting by the fire rather than on the end of a broomstick?

Gobbolino by Ursula Moray Williams is the charming tale of a witch’s cat who would rather be a kitchen cat. Gobbolino has one white paw and blue eyes and isn’t wicked at all, so his mother doesn’t like him. He escapes to look for a kitchen home but is distrusted everywhere he goes and blamed for mysterious happenings, such as the farmer’s milk turning sour and the orphanage children’s gruel turning into chocolate.
A perfect story for A Puffin Book with charming black and white illustrations by the author, Ursula Moray Williams.

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.
Ursula Moray Williams died in October 2006.
