3. Mildred - The Worst Witch

14 Bryanston Drive

The inspiration for Mildred Hubble from the Worst Witch books by Jill Murphy came from my 5 year old grandson. These are his favourite stories. I have changed the colour of  Tabby (Mildred’s cat).  Instead of Tabby’s original colours I’ve used rainbow colours to make the cat look bright and cheerful to bring us hope at this particular time.
