Summary
When pupils disappear into thing air or turn into pigs by mistake, everyone points a finger at Mildred -- the worst witch in the school. No matter how hard she tries to master potions and flying, something always goes wrong. The horrid Miss Hardbroom wants Mildred expelled, but this little witch with a big heart does not give up -- until the day that all her hopes come crashing down. After running away from school, it will take all of her courage and powers to conquer her fears and find her way
