The Worst Witch to the Rescue

author/illustrator: Jill Murphy

series name:
Worst Witch

Lovable but accident-prone Mildred Hubble is possibly the worst witch ever to go to Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. In her sixth adventure, Mildred is set up for disaster by her arch-nemesis, Ethel Hallow, who steals Mildred’s summer project and her enchanted tortoise, Einstein. Are Mildred’s broomstick skills up to the task of flying in a violent thunderstorm to rescue poor Einstein?

“Heartwarming magic with just the right touch of talking toads and tortoises.” —Kirkus Reviews

Jill Murphy has also written and illustrated several award-winning picture books for younger children. She lives in Cornwall, England.
