Review // The Worst Witch - Jill Murphy

Mildred Hubble is a trainee witch at Miss Cackle's Academy, and she is making an awful mess of it. She can't even ride a broomstick without crashing it and she is always getting her spells wrong. But she manages to get by until she turns Ethel, the teacher's pet, into her deadly enemy...

As a child, I loved these books and the TV series. I borrowed them recently from my cousin for nostalgia's sake and as they're so short, i'm kind of cheating on the 50 Book Challenge but i'm already behind due to revision and exams..

The Worst Witch, follows Mildred Hubble's misfortunes as a young witch in Miss Cackle's Academy. Mildred is clunsy and unlucky but always pulls through in the end.
After the Hallowe'en celebrations at the school, Mildred finds herself in trouble after her enemy, Ethel, casts a spell on her broom.
Without giving too much away, Mildred saves the day and as Children's books tend to - it ends happy and positively.

Honestly, I don't remember the stories well but this book took me no longer than 5 minutes to read and from experience, I recommend it to any young child who enjoys reading but prefers short, easy books.
