About This Book

Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg offers a special tale of a widow who finds herself in possession of an extraordinary broom left by a witch who fell into the widow's garden.

Some of Minna Shaw's neighbors don't trust her clever broom. "It's dangerous," they say. "It's a wicked, wicked thing." Minna disagrees. She appreciates the broom's help and enjoys its quiet company. One day two children get a well-deserved thrashing from the broom. For her neighbors, this is proof of the broom's evil spirit. Minna is obliged to give up her dear companion.

Full-color illustrations.
