SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

A witch was flying through the sky with her cat on her broom when suddenly her black hat flew off. She flew her broom down to the ground and started to search for her hat. A dog came out of the bushes with her hat and asked if there was room for him to ride on the broom. The witch said yes and the three flew into the air. Throughout the ride, the witch lost her bow and wand. Each time she stopped to pick them up and met a new friend. Soon, the witch, cat, and dog were joined by a bird and frog.

However, when the frog jumped onto the broom, it broke in half and everyone fell to the ground! The witch was face to face with a dragon that wanted to eat her. Thankfully, her new friends came to the rescue and scared the dragon away. The witch was able to cast a spell and make a brand new broom, with a seat for all of her friends.
