9780141383996: The Worst Witch and The Wishing Star

The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy is back in an exciting, very funny 7th adventure.

In The Worst Witch and the Wishing Star, Mildred, notoriously the worst witch at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches, makes a wish on a shooting star - and to her great surprise it comes true! But it also spells trouble. Mildred's wish-come-true is a small dog but she has to keep him a secret from her friends, and especially the formidable Miss Hardbroom. It's a disaster waiting to happen...and it does...!

The Worst Witch and the Wishing Star launches a stunning new cover look and an appealing squarer format across the whole of the Worst Witch series which includes The Worst Witch; The Worst Witch Strikes Again; A Bad Spell for the Worst Witch; The Worst Witch all at Sea; The Worst Witch Saves the Day and The Worst Witch to the Rescue.

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, of which this is the seventh, are some of Puffin's most successful titles.

Review:

A hugely entertaining story with wonderful illustrations, too. (Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4Kids)
