Book giveaway: The Worst Witch

Celebrate over 40 years of magical mayhem with Mildred Hubble by introducing your little ones to The Worst Witch!

Miss Cackle's Academy is no ordinary school: on clear days you can just about 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...

Halloween is always a special time at Miss Cackle's Academy, so we've got 50 copies of The Worst Witch (Colour Gift Edition) to give away as a treat!
