I would recommend this book especially to fans of the Araminta Spookie books, and other books about otherworldly girls. It also made me think of Deborah Hautzig's Little Witch books from back in the 1980's, (which were apparently illustrated by Marc Brown!) though it doesn't seem like many of the titles I loved are in print anymore. It would also make a really good interim read for kids who want in on the wizard craze, but just aren't ready for Harry Potter yet. Parents often ask me for HP read-alikes that are short and easier to read, and The Worst Witch definitely fits the bill.
