5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite Julia Donaldson book!
Reviewed in the United States on 15 May 2017
As much as we love all Julia Donaldson books, Room on the Broom and Stick Man are our favorites! The story is so much fun. A friendly witch starts her travels with one friend, but ends up making several more friends who help her find lost items along the way. She finds room on her broom for all the animals asking for rides, and they repay her kindness in the end.

This new board book version is more fun than the edition we borrowed from the library. The library version I'm familiar with seems to have been "Americanized" and some of the changes are a bit of a stretch. But this one seems to be closer to the original. Below are changes between editions (library version first, then new board book edition).

-And long ginger hair
in a braid down her back.
-And long ginger hair
which she wore in a plait (plait means braid)

-The witch laughed out loud
and held on to her hat,
But away blew the bow
from her braid - just like that!
-The witch laughed aloud
and held onto her hat,
But away blew the bow
from her long ginger plait!

-"I am a dragon, as mean as can be,
And you, witch, look like
a good supper to me!"
-"I am a dragon, as mean as can be,
And I'm planning to have WITCH
AND CHIPS for my tea!"

-The dragon drew nearer and
started to drool.
He said, "I won't let you go-
do you think I'm a fool?"
-The dragon drew nearer and,
licking his lips,
Said, "Maybe this once
I'll have witch without chips."

-A nest for the bird and
a pool for the frog
-A nest for the bird and
a shower for the frog

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there Room on the Broom for me??
Reviewed in the United States on 16 January 2016
I seriously love this story. I actually saw it on Netflix first and thought it was so adorable and cute. So when I found out that it was actually a childrens book of course I jumped on my trusty Amazon and ordered one right away.

I ordered the board book because I have an 18 month old that just LOVES the sound of paper ripping so the paperback probably not a good idea for a couple more years. Book came undamaged and a perfect size for me to read to my toddler.

He loves to point out the kitty and the puppy, and we are working on 'frog' and 'bird'. Such an adorable friendship story! Good for your own children or to give as a gift for a child under the age of 8.

This is also the same author as The Gruffalo which is another wonderful story! Both book AND claymation stories recommended. If fact, anything from Julia Donaldson!

I paid full price for this item and review it to give other buyers out there more information not listed and whether I would recommended it.
