From Goodreads:
Something is up at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches: Mildred Hubble's new form teacher is really weird. Or is she? Investigating isn't easy, especially when Mildred's potions go wrong, the class know-it-all insists on being 'helpful' and her beloved cat is having a nervous breakdown...

Did you know there were sequels to The Worst Witch?! I had NO IDEA it was a series. When I was a kid, I absolutely loved The Worst Witch. I definitely read it more than once. It was so much fun. So I chose to read this book, even though it wasn’t the second book in the series and I remember very little from the first book.

It was delightful. It’s perfect for beginning readers. If Anne of Green Gables were a witch, I’m sure she would have similar experiences. It’s a fun, quick story!
