Late one night, an old lady in a pointed hat climbs through the window into Nicholas' bedroom. She brandishes her broom, fires out some words, and then leaves as abruptly as she came. It's puzzling at the time, but not nearly as puzzling as what happens the next day! Winner of the Smarties Silver Award, this is one of Satoshi Kitamura's funniest and most popular picture books.

I "read" this as an e-book read aloud by Elijah Wood on Storyline Online. I found the story to be fun and relate-able, as I have often wondered what it would be like to become one of my cats for a day. In terms of an e-book, I think Elijah Wood did not do the best job of narrating the story. He wasn't bad, but he also left something to be desired in that he did not use a lot of excitement or expression in his voice while reading. There were a few moments that lacked enthusiasm. Most likely, he has little experience reading to kids, which is why is reading is lack-luster. However, the Storyline Online site provides many good resources for this book and I had fun thinking about the premise of the story. Ages 6 and up.
