Seemingly ordinary, Mildred's life is turned upside down when she starts her journey in magical education at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches. Now in her final year, Mildred's penchant for mischief has only grown and the adventure to end all adventures has come calling. Yet Mildred is besieged on all sides - there's her jealous schoolmate Ethel Hallow, strict disciplinarian Miss Hardbroom and an old enemy whose revenge plan not only targets Ethel, but the whole world!
