Every witch will want a wombat after reading this humorous picture book perfect for little readers who want a new pet! Wilma, a young witch, cannot wait to get her very first cat! But when the pet store is fresh out of kittens, Wilma brings home. . . a wombat?! What a CAT-astrophe! A wombat is nothing like a cat, but maybe if Wilma puts cat ears on the little critter, no one will notice. . . .
(Spoiler alert: they do.)
This bright and fun picture book teaches young witches that our differences can be our strengths when we have an open mind!
