The Worst Witch and the Wishing Star
author/illustrator: Jill Murphy
Mildred Hubble may be the clumsiest witch at Miss Cackle’s Academy, but she’s been assigned the important task of lighting lanterns and candelabras each evening. It’s a big responsibility, but so is keeping a dog — as Mildred learns when a wish on a star leads her to a lovable stray pup. Will Mildred be able to keep rambunctious Star a secret despite an impending talent competition, the disapproving Miss Hardbroom, her ever-spiteful classmate Ethel Hallow, and her own clumsiness with matches and candles?
Be careful what you wish for! Mildred Hubble, disaster-prone witch in training, is back in a seventh charming magical adventure.
