Be careful what you wish for! Mildred Hubble, disaster-prone witch in training, is back in a seventh charming magical adventure.
Mildred Hubble may be the clumsiest witch at Miss Cackle’s Academy, but as a senior student she’s been assigned the important task of lighting lanterns and candelabras each evening. Inspired by this responsibility, Mildred tries to stay out of trouble. But there are many opportunities for mayhem when a wish on a star leads to a lovable stray pup who, unlike Mildred’s timid tabby, loves to fly on a broomstick. Can Mildred keep Star a secret and avoid setting fire to the school despite an impending talent competition, the disapproving Miss Hardbroom, and her ever-spiteful classmate Ethel Hallow?

After watching the new Worst Witch series, I decided I had to read the books. They are enchanting and encouraging. I wish that I had started reading them when I was the "suggested reader's age."
Young witch, Mildred Hubble, is a very clumsy witch, and she is coming back to Miss Cackle’s Academy for young witches for another year of witch school. In this last book of the series, The Academy competes against other magic academies to win an indoor pool! I like that Midred is adventurous. She flies around on broomsticks, flies up a mountain in a giant rain storm, and I thought that sounded thrilling! Mildred reminds me a lot of Hermione from the Harry Potter series. I also like that even though this is the last book in the series, I didn’t have any trouble following along even though I didn’t read the earlier books yet. The author did a great job of re-introducing the characters to me. I rate this book 4 stars. I typically don’t read this genre of book, but I thought this one was a very fun two-day read for me. It is best suited for young girls under age 10 who are intermediate readers, since the plot is easy to follow and the adventures are not violent at all. Summer H., age 10, Tampa Bay Mensa
