This magical tale of friendship comes from the makers of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child and is also based on a much-loved Julia Donaldson book. In this story, a kind witch invites a large collection of animals onto her broom and her cat isn’t too pleased with her. The animals, however, are able to save the witch from a fearful dragon and in return there is a brand new broomstick that has room for everyone!
