5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, witchy tale! 19 Aug 2001
Format:Paperback
I have always been a big fan of the worst witch and this book is just as pleasing as the rest. In The Worst Witch All At Sea Mildred is forced to leave her Tabby Cat behind when the form go to the seaside. But Mildred cannot bear to leave Tabby so smuggles him along. But for how long can she keep him hidden? And with the interfering Enid and Miss Hardbroom, can she dodge another disaster? This book is fun and completely enjoyable. I couldnt put it down!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mildred returns on fine form 21 Aug 2007
By rhinoa
Format:Paperback
Rating : 4.0/5
Number in Series : #4
Reason for Reading : A bit of light reading

Worst Witch Mildred Hubble returns for another adventure. Miss Cackle (headmistress of Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches) wants Mildred to swap Tabby, her cat, for better behaved black cat Ebony which will also look better with the school colours.

On the upside Form Two led by Miss Hardbroom have been invited to spend a week's holiday at the seaside visiting magician Mr Rowan-Webb (Mildred rescued him from spending the rest of his life as a frog in A Bad Spell for the Worst Witch - book 3). He lives in Gloom Castle at Grim Cove and there is a tale of hidden treasure on Cat's Head Rock nearby. Things become complicated for Mildred when she secretly takes Tabby on holiday instead of Ebony. She has to hide him and secretly take him food.

This was a really fun book. I read the first three when I was a child and loved them. The illustrations are also by the author and are fantastically well done. It was lovely to revisit some characters from my childhood, especially as I am reading some heavy going books at the moment. I recommend this to anyone looking to escape for a couple of hours and anyone who has kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series of books for 6-8 y.os 14 April 2014

My 7 y.o daughter loves the Worst Witch series and we have read them all. I find them amusing too as the sense of humour is sometimes quite dry. They are good stories and not as predictable as some of the series that are available for children.
