About this deal

A class activity could include listing the different characters in the book and then drawing pictures of them. Gobbolino tries to adjust to his life in the cave but fails to complete a single task set by his mistress. I've owned kittens, they grow very fast, and his sister certainly becomes an adult cat in the same time, but Gobbolino remains stunted, kittenish-- immature. 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. In a series of adventures, our hero continually finds what appear to be ideal homes, only to be turned out again when his parentage is revealed, or the circumstances of his human companions change.

Blessed with some magic, Gobbolino is able to use this to his advantage at times, but superstition follows him wherever he goes. 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. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. It's just the beginning of many exciting, magical and sometimes dangerous adventures for these two brave and kind-hearted friends. Although it is quite a long book for a younger audience, each chapter is a like a mini story so children could dip in and out of it because they would not have to remember what happened before to understand the entire story.

Being so kind-hearted and not keen to perform spells and magic tricks, he gets abandoned by his mistress witch and sets off on a series of adventures to find his fortune elsewhere. A story book I'll share as it think it's a wonderful story to be read aloud on a dark stormy bedtime! Whether this is because the author's skill improved in the four years between the two books or because cats are easier to anthropomorphize than wooden toys, is a matter for debate.

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, a witch's feline endowed with unusual powers, is a charming little kitten who faces an identity crisis. He will find some people to live with, and all goes well, until they discover he is a witch's cat and will chase him out and on to the next chapter where the exact same thing will happen with some new people.He has many adventures along the way and makes many friends, until he finally finds the home he dreams of. All he wants is to be a kitchen cat, but Gobbolino has many adventures in his journey before he finds the place where he belongs. rămâne la o familie care îl crede un pisoi normal, iar asta dă peste cap întreaga morală a poveștii.

I read this one aloud to my cats, who all sat on the bed with me, rapt with attention, and, in the end, gave it a unanimous paws up. Covers have scuffing and creasing150 pages, tape residue to inside cover, minor marks and wear, binding tight with roll, no reading creases to the spine. The reader was taken on an emotional roller-coast of repeated anticipation, hope, then disappointment. Dar să vă zic ce am învățat eu după mai bine de două decenii de când sunt nesuferită și sarcastică: când un om te vede așa cum ești și te iubește, nu o să conteze că scoți scântei din mustăți ca Gobbolino sau că faci deseori glume răutăcioase, deși nu cu răutate, ca mine. This sets him apart from other witch's cats like his twin sister Sootica, who have pure black fur and green eyes.This makes it an ideal choice for a teacher who wanted to introduce a longer story to a young audience. De aceea m-a dezamăgit finalul, dar per total e o poveste tare drăgălașă, potrivită atât pentru copii, cât și pentru adulți.
