Mildred Hubble is a trainee at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches, but she's making an awful mess of it.
She keeps getting her spells wrong and crashing her broomstick. And when she turns Ethel, the teacher's pet into her worst enemy, chaos ensues... 'Millions of young readers have fallen under the spell of Jill Murphy's Worst Witch' - Sunday Express Jill Murphy was born in London in 1949.
From a very early age she was drawing and writing stories, and was already putting books together (literally, with a stapler) by the time she was six.

Jill worked in a children's home for four years and as a nanny for a year, before becoming a freelance writer and illustrator.
