The Worst Witch to the Rescue




Sparkling new branding for The Worst Witch - the beloved board-school for witches series

All I will say is - prepare to be astounded! Mildred Hubble has always been the worst witch at Miss Cackle's Academy, but she just knows this term will be different. She's done the best holiday project ever and she's sure that her form teacher, the fearsome Miss Hardbroom, will be impressed. Even her arch-enemy, Ethel Hallow, is being friendly to her! But is it all too good to be true - will disaster strike again for the Worst Witch?

Mildred may be the worst witch at the academy but she's the best friend you could ever have. Millions of readers love her. And so will you . . .

About the author

Jill Murphy

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. She went on to study at Chelsea, Croydon and Camberwell Schools of Art. Jill worked in a children's home for four years and as a nanny for a year, before becoming a freelance writer and illustrator. The Worst Witch stories are some of Puffin's most successful titles. Jill lives in London with her son, Charlie.
