The Lovereading4Kids comment

Long before Harry Potter got to Hogwarts, Mildred Hubble had been learning similar skills at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. Unfortunately, Mildred is the very worst pupil in the school. Now back for a second year, things aren’t going any better. Everything Mildred does just goes horribly wrong. She drops a bucket from a great height on the stern Miss Hardbroom, she fails to keep her cat on her broomstick and she even turns herself into a frog. Gorgeous line illustrations add to the charm of the Worst Witch stories.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. It's not too much fun being turned into a frog - but that's what happens to Mildred Hubble, the ‘worst witch' at Miss Cackle's Academy. But she gets her revenge on the horrible Ethel and even makes the sinister Miss Hardbroom look foolish.
