About this deal

Deși Gobbolino a fost adorabil, printre cele mai simpatice pisici din cărți despre care am citite, nu prea am fost de acord cu finalul. He wants to be a kitchen cat, and yet he goes through town after town without actively looking for a kitchen that wants a cat. This sets him apart from other witch's cats like his twin sister Sootica, who have pure black fur and green eyes. Ursula Moray-Williams' The Further Adventures of Gobbolino and the Little Wooden Horse was originally published in 1984 and continues to be one of the most-loved classic stories of children's literature.

Instead, he longs to be an ordinary kitchen cat that spends his time sitting by the fire and catching mice for his mistress. While his sister is eager to begin her training as a witch's cat, Gobbolino longs to be a humble kitchen cat and to have a loving human family of his own. Gobbolino tries to adjust to his life in the cave but fails to complete a single task set by his mistress. Sadly have little excuse to re-read with no grandchildren on the horizon yet but hey, who needed an excuse ? Along the way, his magic and kindness brought happiness to many, yet his own happiness never really lasted.I listened to the audiobook of this, and though I enjoyed this as a 'listen', I didn't like the voice of Gobbolino much, though it didn't come along too often. You're going to have to read the book to find out the name of the other cat) My daughter, aged 9, really loved the story and it is her that gives the book 5 stars. I bought this book so that I could read it to my children, and hope that they would love it as much as I did as a child. It is beautifully written, and I love it now as an adult as much as I did 30 years ago when I read it the first time.

Gobbolino by Ursula Moray Williams is the charming tale of a witch's cat who would rather be a kitchen cat. It has been published with new illustrations more than once and a 70th anniversary edition of the self-illustrated version was published in the Puffin Modern Classics series. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate.Ursula Moray Williams was born on 19 April 1911 at Petersfield, Hampshire, ten minutes after her twin sister, Barbara. I like the circular nature of the tale, as Gobbolino begins his journey with the river and ends at the river. What made most of this story fun to read was the somewhere-inbetween-ness of Gobbolino, the kind-hearted witch's cat with blue eyes and one white paw.
