" This is the sixth book! I meant to read the second book. Duh. But this was fabulous! Ethel Hallow is one of my favourite literary characters, and I was thrilled that she and Mildred were co-starring the sixth book. Though it was disappointing that, in the end, Ethel's character was reduced to "someone who feels like being a jerk 90% of the time" it was a promising start to some real character development. Six books in and they're only in third form, hurray! More, more, more! " said.

"I have enjoyed every book in this series so far, but this one is the strongest of the lot (so far). It's a surprisingly complex tale for such a little book. For once, Mildred is the star pupil. And the former star pupil likes it not at all. Even old H.B. has to recognized Mildred's talent. Of course along the way there is a ton of trouble for Mildred that nearly gets her expelled.

The illustrations for this series have been nothing short of perfect, and probably the best I've seen for chapter books.

"As I said about book number five, a longer story and more involved than the first books, so a higher rating. In fact, I could not put this one down the story it was so exciting! A definite yes for a young reader's first on their own series, and still perfect for a chapter a night bedtime story for younger children. Absolutely perfect for children too young for Harry Potter, but wanting a story about a magic school. I will be reviewing the series on my Children's book blog and will add the link here after it is posted." said.

"This was the best one so far in the series. Mildred finally showing her potential and with animals, I was racing to the end, when I would find out how out worked out for clever Milly. It's a shame when even your friends are unsure whether or not to believe you. Ethel finally got what she deserved, she is the real trouble maker after all. Mildred never seems to get her into trouble even when it is all her fault.
Once again Mildred is just trying to do the right thing and it only gets her into trouble, she is nice to her friends and tries her best not to lie. All in all, a good role model to young girls.

5 out of 5 stars (If could give more I would).

"Get ready for a magical adventure!

This great book by Jill Murphy features Mildred Hubble (who is attempting to change her bad reputation), her two best friends, Ethel, and a tortoise. Mildred is returning once more to Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches, but this time she has prepared a project that will be sure to impress everyone. However, Ethel is involved, meaning things can’t go as planned. As soon as the classes begin Ethel is destroying Mildred’s perfect start to the school term. In the end Mildred winds up saving a tortoise, who is stuck inside a pine tree, in the middle of a rainy night.

I really enjoyed the creative illustrations and the trouble that Mildred gets in. I like how in this story Ethel is the one coming unprepared. Meanwhile, Mildred says that her holiday project is, “the best idea I’ve ever had in my whole life!”

As soon as I picked up this comical, action packed book I couldn’t put it down! The “magical mayhem” inside fits perfectly for anyone 7 or older. Even if you haven’t read the previous books in the series you will definitely love the adventure. Overall, I have no doubt that this is a 5 star book by Jill Murphy!

"At last, Ethel Hallow gets her comeuppance!

One of the things I like most about the Worst Witch series is that Ethel usually does receive some punishment for her actions, unlike the villains in some other kids' books. But in this sixth book in the series, Ethel finally gets what she truly deserves(view spoiler)" said.

" Definitely my favourite out of the all so far. " said.

" Of all this series that I have read so far I think I found this one the most delightful. " said.
