New [The Worst Witch] author Jill Murphy
Although I personally have found Jill Murphy s 1974 The Worst Witch a bit too much like the outline of a novel with not nearly enough descriptiveness and presented details as well as an ending that feels rather rushed and even a bit of a deus ex machina that leaves me as an older adult reader a bit annoyed and unsatisfied I also do in fact and indeed much admire the author for having introduced and having featured as main protagonist Mildred Hubble a young witch in training at Miss Cackle s Academcy who is always getting her spells wrong has trouble staying balanced on her broomstick and faces constant criticism and bullying not only from her fellow witch trainees but often also from some if not many of her teachers for Mildred Hubble as a literary character in a school based children s story is seemingly one of the first one of the earliest instances where a character who is probably afflicted with and by clumsiness producing dyspraxia or non verbal learning disability is portrayed is actually shown to be the protagonist the main heroheroine of a novel and not just a secondary character looking peering in on the peripheryNow in many ways Murphy s Mildred Hubble really does rather remind me of a female version of JK Rowling s Neville Longbottom However and this is a heavy duty however for those of you thankfully not many but this has unfortunately happened in a select few online reviews I have read who seek to claim that Jill Murphy has somehow plagiarised her The Worst Witch series from Rowling s Harry Potter series well UNLESS Murphy was able to perform a Hermione Grainger like trick of travelling forward in time the latter is patently and utterly impossible seeing that The Worst Witch was published in 1974 and the novels about Harry Potter only started being published in the 1990s Yes in many ways both the format and many of the themes of the two series appear to be linked and a bit similar in scope but they are still independent entities independent novels in and of themselves and of course while JK Rowling might also and indeed have been influenced by Jill Murphy s The Worst Witch and its seuels and had perhaps and even likely read these books as a child I also in NO way even remotely consider her Harry Potter series as being too close too similar to the former except that both series happen to be modern British school story variants and take place in magic and witchery academiesNow while I must admit that as an adult reader and as an older adult reader who has perused much classical literature for both pleasure and academics Jill Murphy s The Worst Witch has generally and a bit frustratingly felt a bit lacking in details and description and also often seems narratively and textually choppy and unfinished I do still very much realise that for reluctant and recently independent younger readers who are not yet uite ready for the intricately depicted and yes also considerably darker and ominous worlds of Harry Potter his friends and enemies Mildred Hubble Miss Cackle et al provide a suitable engagingly entertaining and above all easily read digested and understood romp and subseuent preparation for involved and potentially increasingly dystopian fantasy novel models two and a half stars rounded up to a solid three stars as I do enjoy and have appreciated young Mildred Hubble as a literary character primarily due to the fact that she reminds me so much of myself at her age and the troubles I experienced at school not a witch academy of course but simply Middle School where being clumsy being different putting one s foot into one s mouth having social connection issues all played a painful and annoyingly important role Oh too bad I just realized I forgot to read this with an English accent It would have been ever so much funThis book would have received 5 stars from my 7 8 possibly 9 year old self I would have also really really enjoyed it if it had been read to me when I was 5 and 6 helping to read it of when I was 5 and 6 helping to read it of The story is funny and sweet It s about a witch in her first year of boarding school for witches The plot is predictable but I had no problem with that Mildred is a clumsy student who seems to be in constant trouble but of course there s a very happy endingI thought the illustrations were lovely and fun My favorite illustration is on page 73 of this edition and shows Mildred snuggling in bed with her very adorable cat and there are other details in the pictu.

Ct for read aloud especially if you can muster a British accent haha In this first book in the Worst Witch series Mildred Hubble is in her first term at Miss Cackle s Academy It s a bit like a simplified and all girls Hogwarts with the various houses flying lessons on the broomstick potions classes etc Oh and every young witch gets a cat poor Mildred gets the only non black one an adorable tabby cat whom she loves no matter what I think the cat was my favorite part of the book The illustrations are just so darn cute Mildred gets into various scrapes as she isn t exactly Hermione Granger when it comes to success in her lessons or staying out of trouble But she means well and it s especially unfair when the ostensibly goody goody but deep down meanie Ethel casts a spell on Mildred and makes her take the blame when things go wrong But Mildred interrupts a wicked plot brewing and has a chance to save the school and her reputation Although I think the story is cute and is definitely great for ids who might be interested in Harry Potter but aren t uite ready for that level of book yet I personally wasn t too captivated by it Maybe because it did remind me a lot of Harry Potter which I much preferred Mildred s story wasn t really that surprisinginteresting to me I would chalk this up to being an early chapter book but I have read some I Can Read or Step into Reading books that are much shortersimpler and touched me emotionally That said this was a very pleasant and uick read perfect for a cozy good witch Halloween read and I absolutely adored the illustrations This is the perfect book for young reluctant readersIt s engaging fun fast paced and actually a really great story There s a magic school great friendship antiheroes and a series of unfortunate events And let s not forget the lovely illustrations This is no Harry Potter for sure sure sure sure but no one asked it to be especially since it was first published before that series It s light and the ind of book you don t plan on finishing right the moment you start it but can t help yourself nonetheless The main character Mildred is the worst witch ever at the Academy She seems to attract misery and catastrophe around her Will she and her affected classmates make it through the first year intact To me there s no surprise that this series was brought to the screen twice the first time from 1998 to 2001 and a second time in 2017 I m extremely eager to watch Mildred s unluckiness on screen I honestly don t have anything bad to say about it exc Listened to on audiobook via Listening BooksListening Books is a UK based charity offering an audiobook service to listeners in the UK with a long term illness disability or mental health issues The Worst Witch is one of my childhood favourites It follows a girl given the title of the worst witch in the school by the headmistress Miss Cackle Mildred Hubble is in the first year and always ending up with the wrong potions or falling off her broomstick After landing in severe trouble during a performance she decides to run away and accidentally stumbles onto an evil plan to destroy the school The story is fast paced and lots of fun The audiobook was clearly narrated with lots of humorous moments For those like myself who went to primary school in the 1990s The Worst Witch books were probably the closest thing we ever got to Harry Potter Not that we should feel deprived in any way as The Worst Witch books were and still are enjoyable reads The Worst Witch is the first book in the series and details the troubles of Mildred Hubble a pupil at Cackle s Academy and one who always seems to encounter misfortune
but somehow manages to save the day and in the process save herself not just from a bully names Ethelsomehow manages to save the day and in the process save herself not just from a bully names Ethel also the likes of The Ever Uncompromising Miss Hardbroom ever uncompromising Miss Hardbroom in Key Stage 2 can relate to many of the events since it is set in a school and bring with it the many events that accompany school life such as friendships bullying and encounters with teachers Once you read this book you definitely want to read the others in the series For me it was a book that I used to read just before falling asleep and I suspect that is what many children still to today and with good reason A simple and charming story of a student witch with fun illustrations by the author I ve never read these and thought we d give it a try as a read aloud The ids loved it and so did I but it was very short.
