With lots of fairly short episodes, it will make a good bedtime series for several nights, and even lead to discussions about differing beliefs, about witches and treating others with kindness. 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. And in the end he is accepted - because he has been changed into something else and looks different. Still, the charm of Gobbolino and the interest of his varied adventures, as well as the deep questions that the book raises and embodies, are more than enough to compensate for the equivocal ending. Only thing was it was a different cover on the book, which was disappointing as she chose the book for its initial image and thought it was the wrong book.

His heritage gives almost everyone around him reason to move him on, and his life becomes one adventure after another as yet another home becomes unwelcoming and rebuffs the kitten. This sets him apart from other witch's cats like his twin sister Sootica, who have pure black fur and green eyes. It is so monotonous, I could barely bring myself to read on, but I wanted to finish it since I knew I enjoyed it as a child. He wants to be a kitchen cat, and yet he goes through town after town without actively looking for a kitchen that wants a cat. He doesn't look the part of a witch's cat either, he is dark tabby rather than black, he has one white paw and blue eyes so he gets abandoned by the witch after she can't find another witch to take him on, and Gobbolino is alone in the world.With his bright blue eyes and sparky magic whiskers, no one could mistake Gobbolino for a kitchen cat, but that's just what he longs to be.

After her husband's death in 1974, Ursula Moray Williams remained active, writing, gardening, giving talks and visiting her family in various parts of the world. Gobbolino este un pisoi de vrăjitoare, ceea ce îl face special, simpatic, cu trăsături neobișnuite și cu ceva arsenal de vrăji minore. The illustrations by Paul Howard are soft pencil sketches, giving the tale an old-fashioned quality that suits it very well. Blessed with some magic, Gobbolino is able to use this to his advantage at times, but superstition follows him wherever he goes.I bought this book so that I could read it to my children, and hope that they would love it as much as I did as a child. Acea persoană îți va da lăptic încălzit, dacă ești ca Gobbolino, sau te va asculta mereu când ai nevoie, dacă ai doar două labe. Coming to it at the age I am now, I found it repetitive and rather exasperating--the cat does nothing but cry all the time.
