Childhood Memories
8 September 2006 | by (Warwickshire, Britain) – See all my reviews

As an avid reader, I enjoyed this delightful TV adaption of The Worst Witch! I remember being all excited to get home just so I could watch it! Miss Cackle was one of my faves, as she reminded me of one of my own teachers! There has definitely been some 'modern additions' to it, but it still retains its essence of old British 'charm'! But people should remember that this is based on an old book, intended for young children with vivid imaginations! It does not in anyway portray or is associated with wicca - as some people assume! This book was written way before Wicca became a big concept in modern society! And the producers definitely did not have Wicca in mind while producing it! So don't think that they are wrongly type casting! They just made it to the criteria in this classic book!
