The Worst Witch, Hardback


Miss Cackle's Academy is no ordinary school. It stands at the top of a high mountain surrounded by a pine forest, and one clear days you can just see the pupils flitting about on their broomsticks above the playground wall.

For this is a school for witches and, instead of the usual lessons, the girls there all have to learn about such things as casting spells and making magic potions.

Mildred Hubble has a reputation for being the worst pupil in the school - she's always getting her spells wrong.

But she manages to get by until she turns Ethel, the teacher's pet, into her deadly enemy...For this special 40th anniversary hardback edition, Jill Murphy has reproduced the original drawings in beautiful full colour.
