Miss Cackle's Academy is no ordinary school. It stands at the top of a high mountain surrounded by a pine forest, and one clear days you can just see the pupils flitting about on their broomsticks above the playground wall. For this is a school for witches and, instead of the usual lessons, the girls there all have to learn about such things as casting spells and making magic potions.
Mildred Hubble has a reputation for being the worst pupil in the school - she's always getting her spells wrong. But she manages to get by until she turns Ethel, the teacher's pet, into her deadly enemy . . .

For this special 40th anniversary hardback edition, Jill Murphy has reproduced the original drawings in beautiful full colour.

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.
