The Worst Witch

(5 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Puffin

Long before Harry Potter first went to Hogwarts, trainee witch Mildred Hubble embarked on life at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches...

Loveable but accident-prone Mildred is probably the worst witch ever to attend Miss Cackle's Academy: her spells go wrong, her broomstrick crashes, and then she turns Ethel, the teacher's pet, into a pig! She can't even put her witch's hat on the right way round, and strict teacher Miss Hardbroom is not at all impressed. But when Mildred discovers a plot against the school, can she save the day?

Newly confident readers will love reading this light-hearted and humourous story, which has an irresistible young heroine in Mildred. With plenty of lively fun, plus illustrations from Jill Murphy, it remains a firm favourite.
