The Worst Witch

Before Harry Potter, before the Wimpy Kid… there was the Worst Witch. Chuckle at her disastrous life in this classic series set at the original magic school. Welcome to Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. (Think Hogwarts minus the wizards, but with way more rules.) Hapless Mildred Hubble is the worst student ever to darken the doors of this very strict school. Every spell she tries goes horribly wrong. And things get even worse when she makes a deadly enemy of teacher’s pet Ethel. But although Mildred might be the worst witch there, she’s the best friend you could ever hope to have!

  • First in this classic series about a school for witches
  • Said to be the inspiration behind the Harry Potter books
  • A warm and witty tale of fitting in and proving yourself
  • Laughs, spells, school, disasters – a bewitching brew
