The Worst Witch (Colour Edition)

Hapless Mildred Hubble is the worst student ever to darken the doors of this very strict school. Every spell she tries goes horribly wrong. And things get even worse when she makes a deadly enemy of teacher’s pet Ethel. Luckily, though Mildred might be the worst witch there, she’s also the best friend ever!
