About The Book

When prim and proper Miss Price from next door falls off her broomstick, Carey, Charles and Paul discover that she’s actually a witch. In order to keep them quiet, Miss Price gives the three children a gift – an enchanted bedknob that will whisk them off anywhere they want, for as long as they keep her secret. And so their adventures begin…

Discover The Magic Bedknob and Bonfires and Broomsticks, two stories full of magic from much-loved author Mary Norton, and the inspiration behind the classic film

About the Author

Mary Norton spent much of her childhood in a late Georgian house which later became the model for Firbank Hall in ‘The Borrowers’.
For a year she acted at the Old Vic before getting married and going to live in Portugal. During the Second World War she was evacuated to New York and struggled to support herself and her four children while her husband was in the Navy. It was then that she began to write, and in 1945 her first children’s books, ‘The Magic Bedknob’ and ‘Bonfires and Broomsticks’ later combined in a single volume, ‘Bedknob and Broomstick’ was published. These were followed in 1952 by ‘The Borrowers’, which was awarded the Carnegie Medal, and three other titles ‘The Borrowers Afield’, ‘The Borrowers Afloat’ and ‘The Borrowers Aloft’.
