The Worst Witch All At Sea is the 4th title in the The Worst Witch series by Jill Murphy - the original series of life at a magical boarding school, perfect for readers aged 5-9. Lovable but disaster-prone Mildred Hubble is possibly the worst witch ever to go to Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches . . .

Mildred is in deep water on the school trip!

Mildred Hubble, the worst witch at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches, can't bear to leave behind her beloved cat, Tabby, when the class goes for a week beside the seaside. But keeping Tabby leads Mildred into yet more trouble.

'A wonderful zany story' - Daily Telegraph


Jill Murphy was born in London in 1949. From a very early age she was drawing and writing stories, and was already putting books together (literally, with a stapler) by the time she was six. She went on to study at Chelsea, Croydon and Camberwell Schools of Art. Jill worked in a children's home for four years and as a nanny for a year, before becoming a freelance writer and illustrator.

If you'd like to read more of Mildred's disastrous adventures at Miss Cackle's Academy The Worst Witch, The Worst Witch Strikes Again, A Bad Spell for the Worst Witch, The Worst Witch Saves the Day and The Worst Witch to the Rescue are also available from Puffin and are perfect for children aged 5-9.
