Gobbolino, the Witch’s Cat

Gobbolino, the Witch's Cat

Gobbolino, the Witch’s Cat was first published in 1942.

Here is a cute children’s story about a kitten who wants to be a “kitchen cat,” sitting by a fire and playing with children.  However, Gobbolino was born a witch’s kitten.  Can he live out his dream?

Find out in this story written by Ursula Moray Williams, Illustrations by Francis Phillips and read by Sheila Hancock.

 

 

The name “Gobbolino” is from the Italian word for “little hunchback.”  Do you think that is a fitting name for this little kitten?
