The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of witchcraft and wizardry and black magic, The World’s Worst Witch is a suitable alternative if you’re fed up of re-reading your Harry Potter. Any child who remembers their first day at school will sympathise with Mildred Hubble. Usually a disaster in her spells and learning of magic arts, this time the well meaning witch is determined to make a good impression with predictably hilarious consequences.

Synopsis

The Worst Witch To The Rescue by Jill Murphy

Mildred Hubble is sure that the new term at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches is going to go brilliantly. She has prepared the best Holiday Project ever - she's certain that her form teacher, the formidable Miss Hardbroom, will be impressed. Even Mildred's arch enemy, Ethel Hallow, seems to have turned over a new leaf.
