The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch’s hat, then her bow, and then her wand!  Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom.  But is there room on the broom for so many friends?  And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?

    ‘Stick Man lives in the family tree
    With his Stick Lady Love
    and their stick children three.’

    But it’s dangerous being a Stick Man.

    A dog wants to play with him, a swan builds her nest with him. He even ends up on a fire!

    Will he ever get back to the family tree in time for Christmas? Perhaps Santa can help…
