Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A 25th anniversary edition of the enchanting story of a widow who finds herself in possession of an extraordinary broom after a witch falls into her garden.
Some of Minna Shaw's neighbors don't trust her clever broom. It's dangerous, they say. But Minna appreciates the broom's help. She enjoys its quiet company. But one day two children get taught a well-deserved lesson by the broom. For her neighbors, this is proof of the broom's evil spirit. Minna is obligated to give up her dear companion.

Chris Van Allsburg, master of the mysterious, brings this tale to life with moody and memorable pictures that will haunt readers long after the book's covers are closed--now in a new edition to celebrate this beloved book's twenty-fifth anniversary.

   I read this book with my students and they loved the rich text and pictures
I read this book with my students and loved the rich text and pictures. For my class, this was also a great way to start a conversation about bullying, when the neighborhood boys bull the broom.
   Great Halloween story! Chris Van Allsburg never disappoints!
As he always does, creative and artistically illustrated. I bought the book as a Halloween gift for my four-year-old grandson, a savvy pre- reader who devours his books. I asked my son to read before he gives it to my grandson, because I wonder if it may scare him a bit. It is suitable for 5-10 year olds and adults will enjoy as well. I don 't think that you can really outgrown them!
   Great book!
The illustrations are very good, as always, but the story itself is just wonderful and has a great sense of humor and a wise ending. My children also like it, I should mention, but as with most Van Allsburg books, they are not just for children, but for any age.
What a special and beautiful book. I have a grand nephew and a grand niece and I want them to be exposed to as many books as possible. This fits the bill really well.
   A fine addition to my five year old daughter's Van Allsburg ...
A beautiful addition to my five-year-old daughter's library in Van Allsburg. Saying that it isn't quite Jumanji should not be taken as a knock.
I found a copy of this in a library to sell '' pile, and I was delighted with the story and the artwork. Not nearly as scary as you might think considering the title.
   Great book for teachers!
A wonderful story book with a Halloween theme. Fabulous illustrations by the artist. So much potential for language arts lessons as well as teaching tolerance lessons. The Lesson potential covers grade levels from 5th to 2nd. Great example of how writers craft a surprise ending.
This isn 't the best Van Allsburg book I have ever read, but it was entertaining.
