9780099582496: The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm (Vintage Classics)

The first entry in a completely wacky classic series includes the original illustrations, as well as extra information on accidental inventions that changed our lives, and a few experiments for readers to try

"Once you started anything in Professor Branestawm’s house you never knew when it might finish or even if it ever would."

Poor Mrs. Flittersnoop! It's not easy being Professor Branestawm's housekeeper. People may say he's a genius, but all his inventions always make life more complicated, alarming, and extraordinary than it was before. An innocent bottle of old cough mixture turns out to be an elixir that makes all the waste paper in the bin come to life, the burglar-catcher and the pancake-maker operate just a little too efficiently, and about the spring-cleaning machine, the less said the better. You could write a book about it, but nobody would believe it.

About the Author:

Review:

"Will have seven- to 11-year-olds hugging themselves with glee."  —Daily Express

Book Description Vintage, 2013. Book Condition: New. Welcome to the bizarre and wonderful world of Professor Branestawm, a man who hasn't time to think about normal things, his head being too full of brilliant ideas and wild inventions that never seem to work out quite as planned. First published in 1933 and illustrated by W Heath Robinson, the tales of Branestawm and his cockeyed ingenuity have lost none of their charm. This is a reprint of his very first adventures.
