From Pictures to Words - a guide to choosing books for beginner readers:
Magic, Witches and Wizardry


Broom Broom! by Alex Gutteridge
Published by MacMillan Children’s Books Ltd., 2002
ISBN 0-330-39731-1
Illustrations © Annabel Hudson, 2002


Witch Wendy’s broomstick is in the garage for repairs and she desperately needs it to take part in the Witches’ Annual Broomstick Race. With her cat Snowflake’s help she may just take part after all, but will her rivals Rosemary, Harriet and Primrose ever be nice to her?

Two other stories, Cats and Hats and Cat Tricks make up this easy to read series for beginners. The division of large print text into short chapters accompanied by lots of illustration is just what children aged seven or eight need to encourage independent reading.
