Mildred is back in trouble thanks to the new girl, Enid Nightshade, who isn’t as well behaved as she appears. The more Mildred tries to stay out of trouble, the more she finds herself in horrible situations. What can the disaster-prone worst witch do?


Mildred’s life is about to get even more complicated!

See, she’s the Worst Witch. Nothing falls into place around her. This semester, there’s a new witch in town and she falls into Mildred’s responsibility.

I had more fun reading this book than the last (and first). Enid is surprisingly sly—you never know what she’ll pull out of her sleeve next. She and Mildred make a fascinating team. Though she’s not mean, not at all, just very facetious.

I have to say I really liked how the last book ended, with the villainous witches being captured. It felt like the story suddenly got more expanded, as though there was something bigger at hand. We do not have that here.

I do wonder about the families of these girls. They are never talked about. It’s really just a light fantasy series for reluctant readers that want to be entertained.
