The Worst Witch

Before Harry Potter, before the Wimpy Kid… there was Mildred Hubble, the worst witch in the world. Chuckle at her disastrous exploits in this classic series set in the original school for witches. (Hogwarts, eat your heart out!) In this first book, lovable but clumsy Mildred is a new trainee at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. But she keeps getting her spells wrong and crashing her broomstick. Will she ever shake off her awful reputation as the worst witch around? Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble!

  • I agree with epic 123,it isn’t Mildred’s fault that she gets things wrong but it is quite funny. I also like it when she saves the school. Recommend it for 7 and up

  • I really liked this book and it set me off laughing almost at once. It’s not Mildred’s fault that she always goes horribly wrong, well maybe it is, but only a very tiny amount’s her fault. I adored the part at the end where Mildred showed her school and teachers what she was really capable of doing.
