The Worst Witch

Mildred Hubble tries her best but never has much luck when it comes to her school work. Unfortunately she attends Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches, and her trouble with the broom and disastrous potions lesson seems to make her officially the worst witch! Yet something is brewing and Mildred may yet be an unlikely hero. Following its publication in 1974 the book has gone on to become one of Puffin’s most successful titles.
