Gobbolino the Witch's Cat
About this deal
Gobbolino The Witch’s Cat is probably the best known of Ursula Moray Williams’ books, after Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse, published three years earlier. In 2017 a new edition was produced celebrating seventy-five years since its first publication. Gobbolino is supposed to grow up to be a witch’s cat, just like his mother and like his sister, Sootica, wants to be. But Gobbolino is different from the rest of his family. He has blue eyes and one white paw and what he really wants is to be a kitchen cat and have people who love him. The story follows Gobbolino in his quest to find a home.
