LoveReading View on Bad Spell for the Worst Witch

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.

Bad Spell for the Worst Witch Synopsis

A new term spells disaster for Mildred. She is determined to lose her embarrassing reputation as the worst witch the Academy has ever seen - but things rapidly get out of hand. By the author of "The Worst Witch" and "The Worst Witch Strikes Again".

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.
