Mildred Hubble is starting her first year at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches — and making a mess of it! She can’t ride her broomstick without crashing, she’s always getting her spells mixed up, and worst of all, the teacher’s pet, Ethel, has just become her sworn enemy. -- publisher

Originally released in 1974, The Worst Witch is being re-released for a new generation to discover. Young readers are bound to fall in love with little Mildred Hubble. This poor witch-in-training is the student with her heart in the right place, but nothing else. She's the one who will crash into things while learning to fly on her broom, fixing her broken broom with a pile of sticky tape and glue, and is afraid of the dark (ssshhh, if you don't tell, I won't.).

In this first installment of this delightful character's series, Mildred is the recipient of a kitten. The time has come for all the first year students to get their assigned kitten who will ride on the brooms with their owners. Instead of getting the typical black one, Mildred is given a tabby one. And worse off, yet, the poor kitty isn't taking to flying on a broomstick too well.

Everything comes to a head during her class's formation presentation at the annual Halloween festivities. Mildred's has embarrassed her class by causing a crash landing (not her fault, though). Poor Mildred is so upset, she decides to taker her tabby cat and run away. However, while walking down the mountain, she stumbles across a group of witches. Witches who are plotting to place a spell over everyone at the school so they can control it. Now it's up to Mildred to save the day.

This book was fun to read. Mildred is a cute character who is fun to read. I can relate to being that child who had good intentions, but would somehow, someway mess things up. I think fellow readers will enjoy her, as well. I look forward to reading more adventures of Mildred.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I picked this book specifically for my two nieces, ages 8 & 9, for bedtime stories since they love the Harry Potter series and most witchy books in general. They loved it! I found it to be age appropriate and one that we could all enjoy, myself included!

Poor Mildred may be the worst witch at boarding school but she sure is the funniest and most charming! Perfect for elementary grades 2-5 but could be read to a child of any age!

Format: Hardcover
This is a classic children’s book and this sumptuous, colour, hardback edition only makes it more special. Of course, the story features our heroine Mildred Hubble at Miss Cackle’s Academy – high up at the top of a mountain. Mildred really wants to be a great witch, but instead she is unsuccessful at her spells and is always in trouble. In many ways, this is a typical school story, just with a more unusual setting. There is Ethel, the teacher’s pet, Mildred’s friends Maud and Enid, lots of fun spells and a Halloween festival in which Midred and her classmates have to put on a broomstick display, with predictably disastrous consequences…

This version of the book is larger than usual, with full colour illustrations. The book itself is not particularly long (about 112 pages) and has short chapters and lots of fun illustrations. The first in a series, this is a beautiful gift version and is perfect for any child’s bookshelf either to read alone (depending on reading age, once children are confident with chapter books) or to share alone as a perfect Halloween read.

Mildred Hubble is in trouble from the start at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. She can't fly well and messes up her spells. However, she finds that she can be useful and the other students and teachers come to appreciate her too. This is a fun story for early readers and I think they will enjoy it. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.

The first story in the series, and now I'm reading them all again because my five year-old daughter loves them. My kids are quite sensitive to violence or danger in stories because we don't have a tv (we got rid of it so they wouldn't be desensitised, & it has certainly worked!), but these stories are perfect adventures without ever being scary for kids. My 3 year old listens along fine (tho I think he enjoys the cuddle more than the story!). Recommended!

First novel in the Worst Witch series. This is a cute story about a young girl named Mildred who wants nothing more than to be a witch. The only problem is she isn't particularly good at it. Her broom riding is shameful, and wouldn't you know it, when her class receives their black kittens, the teacher runs out of them before getting to poor Mildred. She gets a tabby instead. Cute story perfect for grades two to five.
