The Worst Witch Saves the Day by Jill Murphy

Never use a curling iron without instructions.  Also, be very careful with growth spells...

Candlewick Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  This whole series will be available August 5th, so make a note to pick them up then.

Mildred is back at school, still trying to fit in and stay out of trouble.  When she gets her friend's curling iron stuck in her hair, Ethel offers to help and cuts a hunk out of her very long hair.  That looks awful so she keeps cutting.  Poor Mildred.  She has hair sticking out all over her head now.  What's she to do? Ethel does feel a bit guilty, so she volunteers to make up the spell to make things grow.  Mildred is going to try it on her hair. 

Remember in the Sorcerer's Apprentice when Mickey Mouse used a spell to get the broom to do his work for him, but he doesn't know how to stop it and it almost floods the building?  Here Mildred puts the stuff on her and it starts to grow and grow and grow...  She can't get it to stop!

Mildred sure isn't boring.  She never means to do any harm, but somehow things go wrong.  Your young one won't be bored reading any of this series.  Even if Mildred doesn't do well with spells, she still keeps you entertained!
