The Little Broomstick

By Mary Stewart

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The enchanting classic by master storyteller Mary Stewart, soon to be made into a striking, animated film.

First published 45 years ago, this is a beautiful new edition of Mary Stewart's beloved magical classic illustrated by Shirley Hughes - soon to be adapted into an animated film by the producer of The Tale of The Princess Kaguya.

'The little broomstick gave a leap, a violent twist, a kick like the kick of a pony.'

Mary's been exiled to her deaf great-aunt deep in the English countryside. Miserable and lonely, she befriends strange black cat Tib who leads her deep into the forest to a clump of unusual purple flowers and an ordinary looking little broomstick. Before Mary can gather her wits, the broomstick jumps into action, whisking her over the treetops, above the clouds, and in to the grounds of Endor College, school of witchcraft.

But something is terribly wrong at Endor. Students are taught spells that are petty and ill-wishing, and when Mary discovers evidence of a terrible and cruel experiment in transformation, she decides to leave. But the moment her broomstick takes off, she realises that Tib the cat has been captured ...

Mary Stewart is the bestselling author of fourteen romantic thrillers, including the classic novels
This Rough Magic and The Moon-Spinners, and five historical fantasy novels of Arthurian Britain.

The animated film, called Mary and the Witch's Flower will be released in cinemas in 2017 by Yoshiaki Nishimura, producer of The Tale of The Princess Kaguya and When Marnie Was There.
