Read full description of the books:
Once again, Mildred Hubble proves herself to be the unluckiest witch alive. Or Ethel proves herself to be the worst witch alive. Whichever you prefer.
I don’t know how Mildred didn’t see it coming. I know I did, and so will any other reader, though perhaps not the targeted audience? If so, then the predictability is fine. Mildred’s just too trusting for her own good.
In spite of seeing the main events coming from kilometres away, I found myself extremely entertained by this sequel. I’m all for talking animals. In fact I think they could be teaching us so much, if only they’d be able to talk.
Fortunately, Mildred has created a potion for them to do just that. Unfortunately, Ethel’s being a villain (as always) and tries to ruin Mildred’s chances at proving herself to be the great witch her reputation disproves.
Every child should read (or be read) these books. I’m not one for reading series back-to-back—not anymore—so it says a lot that that’s what I’ve been doing the past few days. Jill Murphy’s THE WORST WITCH series is a collection of short stories, but they are so lovely and remind you of that magic time that is childhood.

Read information about the authorJill Murphy is a London-born English children's author, best known for The Worst Witch series and the Large Family picture books. She has been described as "one of the most engaging writers and illustrators for children in the land."
Jill Murphy was born in London and attended the Ursuline Convent in Wimbledon which, together with the boarding school stories she enjoyed reading, provided much of the material and inspiration Miss Cackle's Academy in the The Worst Witch, which she started when she was 15. Mildred Hubble is very much a self-portrait! She put the book on hold as she attended both Chelsea and Croydon Art Schools, but continued to write it whilst living in a village in Togo, West Africa for a year and then whilst working as a nanny back at home. The book was published when Jill turned 24 and proved an instant success. However, Jill continued working as a nanny until the publication of The Worst Witch Strikes Again prompted her to devote herself to full-time writing. The Worst Witch stories have become some of the most outstandingly successful titles on the Young Puffin paperback list and have sold more than 3 million copies. They were also made into a major ITV series. She is also well known for her picture books and was commended in the 1980 Kate Greenaway Medal for Peace at Last. A Quiet Night In was shortlisted for the same medal in 1994. She is best known for the very popular Mr and Mrs Large picture books, which detail the domestic chaos of an elephant family. Five Minute's Peace won the 1987 Parents Magazine Best Books for Babies Award, as well as being shortlisted for the 1986 Children's Book Award. All in One Piece was highly commended for the 1987 Kate Greenaway Award and shortlisted for the 1987 Children's Book Award. The Last Noo-noo won the 0-5 category of the 1995 Smarties Book Prize and in the same year was shortlisted for the English 4-11 Outstanding Children's Book of the Year, going on to win the 1996 Sheffield Children's Book Award. It won the 1996 Gateshead Gold Award. In the same year it was adapted as a play and performed at the Polka Theatre, London.
