    Mildred is excited to be studying and training at the school but she's not leaving the best impression. She keeps making mistakes like getting spells wrong and crashing her broomstick...

    Throughout these seven books, Mildred has to deal with a girl called Enid Nightshade who is not as placid as she looks; finds herself turned into a frog; and makes plans to ensure she will not be the worst witch in following years...

    Containing all seven books (complete with refreshed artwork) in the magical series from Jill Murphy, we guarantee your children will want to join Mildred and her friends at the Academy after reading these books.
