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 😍😀

Good 😌

I liked the story and it was overall well narrated nut there could be different voices.
But I did really like it and I do recommend it to you. The story was also very good and enjoyable. It represents kindness,bravery, courage and I would say strength. So overall I rate this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😊😊😊

I love it 🤩

I listen to this book 📚when I only have a couple of hours and it has started my day so much better and easier for me. I love ❤️ this book it amazing 🤩

I think 🤔 anyone who likes witches 🧙 or they don’t know much about Math and English will probably enjoy this because Mildred isn’t a good witch but is a bit better at riding on her
broom 🧹. I LOVE 💕 IT
❤️❤️❤️
