Gobbolino by Ursula Moray Williams is the charming tale of a witch's cat who would rather be a kitchen cat.

Gobbolino has one white paw and blue eyes and isn't wicked at all, so his mother doesn't like him.

He escapes to look for a kitchen home but is distrusted everywhere he goes and blamed for mysterious happenings, such as the farmer's milk turning sour and the orphanage children's gruel turning into chocolate.

A perfect story for A Puffin Book with charming black and white illustrations by the author, Ursula Moray Williams.
