My daughter and I loved it

I recommend this book to any young lady or budding young witch of around 6/7 8/9 years old.
We enjoyed it and liked the story - poor Mildred gets into trouble but there is a happy ending 😍😀

Nice voice for nostalgic stories

These are stories I grew up with watching on TV and now listening to them brings it all back. Gemma Arterton doesn't quite manage to alter her voice for the different characters but her elocution and clean voice makes this a joy to listen to. My son really seems to like her voice and the stories are wonderful

Awesome book

I am seven and I like it because it is exciting and I like the witch getting a kitty cat I think she was a bit clumsy but very brave trying to please her teachers I think it is suitable for seven year olds and up. There is only one scary bit but it is not that scary.
