Product description

Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble! Get ready to chuckle at the hilarious trials of Mildred Hubble, the funniest and most disaster-prone student ever to darken the doors of Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches! When clumsy Mildred arrives at the Academy, she has no idea just what she’s in for. It’s bad enough that every spell she attempts goes horribly, chaotically wrong – but worse is to come when she accidentally turns Ethel, the teacher’s pet, into her deadly enemy. This classic book, the first in a much-loved series, creates a magnificently offbeat world full of spooky characters. Many chuckles later, you’ll be in no doubt that while Mildred might be the worst witch in the world, she’s the best friend you could ever have!

    The worst Witch is about a girl named Mildred. She is the worst witch in the school! But somehow, even with all the trouble she’s made she pulls off a spell that will never be forgotten. I loved this book! And you will too, so pick it up and read it!!!!

    Great book, it mixes boarding school with magic and adventure, A classic and should be on every girls book shelf. Mildred is so hopeless, it really is quite funny. Great read for ages 9+

    I like the series because they are like harry potter I also like witches,wizards,magic and spells(I don’t really like cats though.).My favourite characters are Mildred Hubble,Enid Nightsade,Maud Moonshine and Ethel hallow because they are funny(exept Ethel Hallow I just like her.).
