The famously disaster-prone Mildred, witch in training, flies in for a brand-new adventure that makes a perfect Halloween treat. Mildred is starting her third year at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches with high hopes of improving her klutzy record. But that's before a curling-iron catastrophe leads her to experiment with a hair-growing potion with hair-raising results. And it's before she raises the ire of Miss Granite, the odd new teacher who doesn't seem to act like a teacher at all. Could she be an imposter? And is there anything in Mildred's bag of tricks that can save the school if her hunch is right?
Jill Murphy is the author-illustrator of the popular Worst Witch series as well as a humorous series of picture books about the Large family, including A PIECE OF CAKE and MR. LARGE IN CHARGE. She lives in Cornwall, England.
