The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of witchcraft, 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 has always been the worst witch at Miss Cackle's Academy, but she just knows this term will be different. She's done the best holiday project ever and she's sure that her form teacher, the fearsome Miss Hardbroom, will be impressed.
