This came out BEFORE Harry Potter
23 July 2017 | by pencilprintSee all my reviews

I just felt the need to say, The Worst Witch stories came out in the 90's, well BEFORE Harry Potter. Before anyone claims The Worst Witch is a rip-off from Harry Potter.. it is actually the other way around.

Additionally, I've actually never read The Worst Witch or seen the shows from the 90's, but I felt addicted to this reboot series. The acting was very good, some special effects were cheaply done, but overall, the story line was well written.
