Product Description

Review

Millions of young readers have fallen under the spell of Jill Murphy's Worst Witch (Sunday Express) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is the second book in The Worst Witch series. It is summer at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. Although, at the end of the first book, Mildred Hubble had saved the school from disaster, she had a terrible report and is worried about the coming term.There is a new girl at school – Enid Nightshade – and Mildred is supposed to be looking after her. Mildred’s friend, Maud, feels jealous at being replaced and, even worse, becomes friends with her enemy, Ethel! At first, Enid seems quiet and placid, but all is not what it seems below the surface…

Summer term ends with Sports Day – can Maud avoid the threat of being expelled this term or will there be another disaster? This is a school story with a twist and a series that my daughter is really enjoying. It has short chapters and charming black and white illustrations, which really add to the fun. I love the quirky names and the mischief the girls get up to - for example, Enid has a pet monkey to ride on her broomstick, rather than the cat that all the other girls have (Mildred is wonderfully outraged about that, exclaiming the girls are not even allowed an owl!). Thankfully, there are more books for her to read after this, and I am also enjoying listening to her read these to me.

what can you say - Jill Murphy is a national treasure for her impact on children's literacy and awakening the joy of reading! My daughter's school now begins to show some striking resemblance to Cackle's Academy.........

My 5 year old daughter loves these books, we read a chapter at bedtime every night. The chapters are just the right length and the content of the stories isn't scary! Highly recommended. It is also good to come across a book that is part of a series, as then you know there are more to come!

There is a void in the library shelf where children need chapter books, with fun characters, pictures frequently, white space and not too many pages! This series neatly fills the gulf. Created a long time before Harry Potter and crew, this is a well written series. Primarily appealing to girls. Vocabulary is interesting but will be comprehended by a young reader.

My daughters love this series to read by themselves, age 4 - 6. Would suit girls aged 4-9. And reluctant readers who are older!

I read the first and third of these books and really enjoyed them. I think this book was really nice and shows a lot of friendship between the three girls. I really want to get all the others. Holly aged 8.

I bought this for my seven-year-old daughter to read to herself, and she polished it off in three nights. She loves this series! 7+ years reading age, with lively pen-and-ink illustrations. (Mildred's vertigo-suffering cat continuing to be my favourite.)

This is the second "Worst Witch" story. Mildred, the very untalented student who started at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches in the first book, is back and in even more trouble. Enid, the new girl, loves pranks and mischief and keeps getting Mildred involved. Ethel is still the school bully. Miss Drill is everyone's nightmare of a P.E. teacher, Miss Cackle continues to be the amiable headmistress, and the real authority is the severe and scary Miss Hardbroom.

So far, so traditional British boarding school story. Where it leaves Angela Brazil behind is that, though based very firmly on the author's real childhood school, it's a school for witches and everything gets moved up one step. Enid doesn't just bring a pet to school; she turns her cat into a monkey and it escapes. Sports Day leads to enchanted pole vaults through the window. Escaping from a locked cupboard involves using a decrepit magic broom that's failed its MOT test. Can Mildred survive all this without being expelled?

There are seven books in the series, so it's plainly a happy ending...

My son and I read this book together when he had just turned seven years of age. We both really enjoyed it. We never felt that we were reading a book solely for girls - it's essentially just a very well told story that both boys and girls will get a lot of pleasure from.
