One of Satoshi Kitamura's funniest and most popular picture books, now available as an Andersen Paperback.

Late one night, an old lady in a pointed hat climbs through the window into Nicholas's 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...


Kitamura is one of the world's most original and stylish children's illustrators.
