the worst witch and the wishing star

In the first story from Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches in 6 years Mildred Hubble is about to learn to be careful what you wish for…

Mildred, notoriously the worst witch at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches, makes a wish on a shooting star – and to her great surprise it comes true! But it also spells trouble.

Mildred’s wish-come-true is a small dog but she has to keep him a secret from her friends, and especially the formidable Miss Hardbroom.

It’s a disaster waiting to happen… And it does…!
The last one in the series, what a shame, I wish there was a few more, the way the pattern was going there could be at least 3 more. Anyway, like the rest of this series this book did not disappoint. Not too much magic happens in them other than flying broomsticks and people getting turned into animals, but I don’t mind much, the writing has a magic to it. All the characters you know and love are back. Miss Hardbroom, seems to have a soft spot for Mildred even if she would never admit it.

Star is amazing, so cute, I really wish I had a dog like that. I honestly don’t know why everyone doubts Millie so much, she always comes through in the end. Also should teachers be allowed to call a student “the worst witch” in front of them, a bit cruel.

Jill Murphy if you ever decide to write more worst witch books I will buy them 🙂

5 out of 5 stars.
