They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two! What will happen next as they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon?Ideal for use in the classroom, Room on the Broom Big Book is a very funny story of quick wits and friendship. Perfect for reading aloud, children will be captivated by Julia Donaldson's irresistible verse and Axel Scheffler's spectacular illustrations.EU Toy Safety Directive - No warning|EU Toy Safety Directive - Carries minimum age warning
