Halloween is almost here, the full month of October is filled with ghosts, goblins and witches!!
Room On the Broom is the perfect book and film to fill up one of your family nights this month. The #1 best-selling children’s picture book in America, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Sheffler (the same author and illustrator team that created The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s child) Room on The Broom is filled with humor, adventure all while teaching the importance of family, friends and teamwork!
To accompany a night of reading, why not pop in the Room on the Broom DVD from NCircle Entertainment, and watch the story come to life!!
Room On The Broom includes a witch and her cat, who fly through the sky on their broomstick, until the witch drops her hat, then her bow, then her wand! The happy witch and cat suddenly become unhappy. Luckily, three helpful animals – a dog, parrot, and frog come to their rescue and find the missing items, which they’d like to return and all they want is a ride on the broomstick. But is there room on the broom for so many new friends? The witch, as kind as she is, thinks there is to much frustration of her cat. But when disaster strikes, and the witch is about to be eaten by a fearsome dragon, she is saved by the gang of animals, all working together. The witch’s cat learns the importance of friends and family, and the witch rewards her new friends with a magnificent broom that is big enough for everyone!
Beautiful CGI animation brings the book’s drawings to life under the direction of Max Lang. Gillian Anderson (The X Files) provides the voice of the witch; while Timothy Spall of Harry Potter fame, lends his voice to the dragon. Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) narrates the story which also features the recognizable voices of Martin Clunes, Rob Brydon and David Walliams portraying the helpful animals that comprise the witch’s family. Room on the Broom is produced by Magic Light Pictures (the team behind award-winning animations The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child).
This book and DVD are a great family night collection. Great for younger kids but still keeping the interest of my 10 yer old daughter. It’s a great story and fun to watch and read.
