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.

    I absolutely love this book. I bought it from my school's World Book Day sale 3 years ago. I decided to read it yesterday and it was so good! Mildred Hubble goes to Cackle's academy for the first time and accidentally turns her arch-nemisis Ethel into a pig. Do you want to find out more? Then read the book!

      It had loads of magic in it and the blurb was good because it didn't give away any spoilers recommend it for under 11s
