The Lovereading4Kids comment
The trials and tribulations of a disastrous new girl at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches a gloriously witchy boarding school, The Worst Witch has magic galore. Unfortunately for Mildred Hubble, most of it has a habit of going badly wrong. Her broomstick won’t fly straight, her cat is tabby not black and she manages to turn her arch-enemy into a toad. Nice short chapters with stunning illustrations also by Jill Murphy make this a perfect first reader.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for The Worst Witch a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Mildred Hubble chews on her plaits, wears her hat back to front and her shoe laces trail on the floor. She is worst witch in her school but it isn't her fault. ' - Jemima Foyster.

The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
Mildred Hubble's first term at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches starts badly. She can't control her broomstick, her kitten, or her spells, unlike goody-goody Ethel.
Kids love to read and a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review The Worst Witch. You can read their reviews below.
