Description

A Bad Spell for the Worst Witch is the third of Jill Murphy's much-loved The Worst Witch series, starring the lovable but disaster-prone Mildred Hubble - possibly the worst witch ever to go to Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches . . .

A new term spells disaster for Mildred!

After a disastrous first year, Mildred is determined to lose her embarrassing reputation as the worst witch Miss Cackle's Academy has ever seen - but things rapidly get out of hand when her arch-enemy Ethel turns her into a frog...


Jill Murphy started putting books together (literally with a stapler), when she was six. The Worst Witch was first published in 1974 and this much-loved classic has been enjoyed by readers for more than 30 years. Jill Murphy also written and illustrated several award-winning picture books for younger children.

About Jill Murphy

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.
