The entire series also now has a beautiful refreshed cover design and series look, bringing Miss Cackle’s Academy to a new generation of magic and mayhem-loving readers.

The Story

Mildred makes a wish on a shooting star – and to her great surprise it comes true! Mildred’s wish-come-true is a small dog but how can she keep him a secret from all the others, especially the formidable Miss Hardbroom? It’s a disaster waiting to happen…and it does! – But everything turns out for the best when Mildred and her clever dog, Star, win an outdoor (brrr) swimming pool for the school! image-67
