It is Tib the black cat who leads Mary to the strange flower in the woods. When she discovers a little broomstick shortly afterwards, she is astonished to feel it jump in to action. Before she can gather her wits, it is whisking her over the treetops, above the clouds, and in to the grounds of Endor College, where: 'All Examinations Coached for by A Competent Staff of Fully-Qualified Witches.' Here she discovers evidence of a terrible experiment in transformation - deformed and mutant animals imprisoned in cages. In the moment after her broomstick takes off, she realises that Tib has been captured. Returning to the College the following day, she manages to free the animals, but not before the Head of the college, Miss Mumblechook, and her colleague, Doctor Dee, have seen her. Mary manages to flee...but the evil pair are in hot pursuit!

I loved the book, it was so cute. A little different then the movie version but that's fine with me. Though the only down side is that it's a quick read but still grab your favorite tea, comfy blanket, put on some Studio Ghibli music to then let the book take you away.
I hope no one is expecting to read the book hoping to get more than the movie. The book is almost completely different... not so magical. It's a nice book, though. The movie has a lot of magic going on and twists. The book is so much more simpler.
My daughter loved the movie, and then read the book. Interesting for her to be able to compare the two! She loves the book just as much, but differently.
This is was a delightful surprise that I just discovered. I can't believe I hadn't heard of before. A delightful short story (especially good for younger readers, those not quite ready for Harry Potter, et al.). Also, this would be a nice treat for English garden lovers. I say this because the author clearly loves plants and gardens. All-in-all this is a great read for people of all ages. Enjoy!
Childhood favorite restored to my personal book shelves thank you
My daughter was thrilled!
read this as a little girl, and i was so very glad to find it. very similar to the harry potter series, and was in excellent condition - i was very happy.
Great story, a fun read!
