Read full description of the books:
In this fifth book in The Worst Witch series, someone’s pretending to be someone they’re not, automatically deceiving everyone in their passage, including trouble-prone Mildred.
While I did enjoy this sequel, I found it not as surprising and creative as the last. Many elements were recycled from past books—there’s one even the author acknowledges—and while Mildred’s attitude towards them changes, seeing her reactions was not enough entertainment to make me love The Worst Witch Saves the Day as much as the others.
Also, it’s more like The Worst Witch and Her Friends Save the Day, because without them, Mildred would still be in trouble right about now. Her friends often come to the rescue, by the way. It’s about time someone mentions that.
Every character gains maturity, except for Ethel. It’s as though her immature, unexplained feud with Mildred will last forever. The worst thing is, Ethel doesn’t even have minions, so she’s just some random villain who annoys most people and no one seems to fear. At least now, she hides some of her sneering.
It was good to learn that Mildred has a family—a mother, at least. That’s all that was explicitly said. But at least she was mentioned. Before, I didn’t even know if she had parents or not. Only the girls and school are talked about in the series. Nothing of the exterior world. I wonder if the mundane people even know witches exist.

Read information about the authorJill Murphy is a London-born English children's author, best known for The Worst Witch series and the Large Family picture books. She has been described as "one of the most engaging writers and illustrators for children in the land."
Jill Murphy was born in London and attended the Ursuline Convent in Wimbledon which, together with the boarding school stories she enjoyed reading, provided much of the material and inspiration Miss Cackle's Academy in the The Worst Witch, which she started when she was 15. Mildred Hubble is very much a self-portrait! She put the book on hold as she attended both Chelsea and Croydon Art Schools, but continued to write it whilst living in a village in Togo, West Africa for a year and then whilst working as a nanny back at home. The book was published when Jill turned 24 and proved an instant success. However, Jill continued working as a nanny until the publication of The Worst Witch Strikes Again prompted her to devote herself to full-time writing. The Worst Witch stories have become some of the most outstandingly successful titles on the Young Puffin paperback list and have sold more than 3 million copies. They were also made into a major ITV series. She is also well known for her picture books and was commended in the 1980 Kate Greenaway Medal for Peace at Last. A Quiet Night In was shortlisted for the same medal in 1994. She is best known for the very popular Mr and Mrs Large picture books, which detail the domestic chaos of an elephant family. Five Minute's Peace won the 1987 Parents Magazine Best Books for Babies Award, as well as being shortlisted for the 1986 Children's Book Award. All in One Piece was highly commended for the 1987 Kate Greenaway Award and shortlisted for the 1987 Children's Book Award. The Last Noo-noo won the 0-5 category of the 1995 Smarties Book Prize and in the same year was shortlisted for the English 4-11 Outstanding Children's Book of the Year, going on to win the 1996 Sheffield Children's Book Award. It won the 1996 Gateshead Gold Award. In the same year it was adapted as a play and performed at the Polka Theatre, London.
