The Worst Witch - Jill Murphy

I stumbled across my copy of this book while cleaning out my mother's attic. I used to read it all the time as a child. I was fascinated with the story. I even remember watching the film version of it and dreaming about being a witch.

Rereading it, I loved it just as much as the first time. The writing is simple, making it easy to understand for young readers. The plot is very fun and interesting. I really loved Mildred's character. She is loveable and relatable, despite always getting into trouble.

This pre-Harry-Potter witch school book is a fantastic read.

I am so excited to learn that it is part of a sequel. I know what books I'll be on the hunt for next.
