Mildred Hubble was in her first year at the school. She was one of those people who always seemed be in trouble.’

Hold on to your broomstick for magical mayhem with Jill Murphy’s much-loved classic The Worst Witch- the original story of life at a magical boarding school. 

Mildred Hubble is a trainee at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches, but she’s making an awful mess of it. 

She keeps getting her spells wrong and crashing her broomstick. And when she turns Ethel, the teacher’s pet into her worst enemy, chaos ensues…

My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Before Harry Potter or should I say Hermione Granger there was Mildred Hubble. But unlike Hermione she wasn’t quite as talented and just as haphazard as Neville. Bless poor Mildred she does try very hard and I love that about her, she never gives up and like Harry always saves the day. With characters that I’m sure JK took inspiration from. This is a fun, easy and great early introduction to the magical wizard and witches world. A great trip down memory lane. I adore it. Perfect for any aspiring witch or wizard.

About The Author Jill Murphy was born in London in 1949. From a very early age she was drawing and writing stories, and was already putting books together (literally, with a stapler) by the time she was six. She went on to study at Chelsea, Croydon and Camberwell Schools of Art. Jill worked in a children’s home for four years and as a nanny for a year, before becoming a freelance writer and illustrator. The Worst Witch stories are some of Puffin’s most successful titles.

  1. Wholeheartedly agree with you. 💚 I loved these books when I was a child and I still have fond memories about them now. I’m 49yrs old. It’s so wonderful that they are still available and Mildred’s antics are entertaining new generations.
