If Amelia Bedelia happened to attend Hogwarts, then you would be left with The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy. The Worst Witch follows the misadventures of Mildred Hubble who is a young witch with a knack for always getting into trouble despite her best intentions. When Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches is in dire trouble, it may be up to Mildred to save the day. With brilliant black and white illustrations, The Worst Witch is a fun, quick, family friendly read with plenty of comedic moments. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the charming world crafted by Jill Murphy and am eagerly looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Also, don’t forget to check out the classic film adaptation starring Diana Rigg and Tim Curry.

I liked the way that in the beginning, Mildred gets into trouble, but in the end she is a hero.

The pictures are fantastic - there aren't many pictures.

The story makes me want to read more. I have now started the next book
