It is beautifully written, and I love it now as an adult as much as I did 30 years ago when I read it the first time. While his sister is eager to begin her training as a witch's cat, Gobbolino longs to be a humble kitchen cat and to have a loving human family of his own. A knight finds him and gives him to a lady as a gift, but when Gobbolino tries to help the knight win over the Lady, he only causes more trouble.

What made most of this story fun to read was the somewhere-inbetween-ness of Gobbolino, the kind-hearted witch's cat with blue eyes and one white paw. I like the circular nature of the tale, as Gobbolino begins his journey with the river and ends at the river. He has many adventures along the way and makes many friends, until he finally finds the home he dreams of. While reading this, I thought about all the stray cats in the world, all the abandoned ones, the unwanted, the discarded furry creatures and I wished with all my heart that they find a place to settle, to curl in, by the fire with a warm milk or a blanket to comfort them, a loving family to love them forever.Mesajul cărții este unul foarte profund și generos, învățându-i pe copii să privească dincolo de aparențe și să judece pe cineva pentru ceea ce este și nu pentru ceea ce pare a fi.

Born to a witch's cat, Gobbolino wants nothing more than to find a home amongst the warmth and bustle of a kitchen.

The witch puts a spell on him, removing his magical powers, and he finds his way back to the farm where he began his journey, his coat having faded to an unrecognisable tabby. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate.

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. No one could mistake Gobbolino for a simple kitchen cat, with his sparky whiskers and magic tricks, but that's just what the witch's kitten wants to be.Deși Gobbolino a fost adorabil, printre cele mai simpatice pisici din cărți despre care am citite, nu prea am fost de acord cu finalul. 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. Reissued for its seventy-fifth anniversary with illustrations by the award-winning Catherine Rayner, this classic tale has been loved by generations of children.
