The Peculiar Triumph Of Professor Branestawm
  • The Peculiar Triumph Of Professor Branestawm

  • He's madly sane and cleverly dotty. He's the craziest genius you'll ever meet and he's about to cause havoc in Pagwell with his wild inventions . . . The lovable Professor Branestawm, with his five pairs of spectacles and his pockets full of all manner of things, is back!

    Norman Hunter's irrepressible humour packs every page and the illustrations (by the well-known cartoonist, George Adamson) entirely capture the eccentricity of the Professor and the hilarity of his incredible adventures.

Norman Hunter was born in 1899 in Sydenham, London. After leaving school he became an advertising copywriter. He also began, in 1915, giving performances of conjuring. His first Professor Branestawm book was published in 1933. After living in South Africa, he returned to England in 1969 where he lived by the river at Staines until his death in 1995.
