The Worst Witch and the wishing star is about Mildred Hubble and is the 7th book in a series. I haven’t read any of the previous books and it worked as a stand-alone book. This is a children’s book and is a quick read with short chapters if your child is looking to read 1 or 2 before bed. There are some great illustrations throughout as well! Mildred and her friends are working on broomstick management and Mildred is in charge of lighting the lanterns. She’s a bit clumsy so she is trying to be careful and stay out of trouble. But then she wishes on as star for a dog – and her wish comes true! Now in addition to being careful with the lanterns, she has to sneak off and take her dog for a walk as well. Will everyone find out about the dog? And what happens if they do?
This was a cute book and maybe I’ll get to read a few others in the series soon!
I received a free e-copy of this book in exchange for this review.
About the Book
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?
