Our thoughts…

Bedknobs and Broomsticks is such a classic in both the literary and the film world. We were delighted to find this special edition of the book published by Hachette and yes, it’s yet another one that we’ve added to our collection! We know it’s not the 1943 publication but it’s a timeless classic that just doesn’t age and having it in such a beautiful format is a treat for our shelves.

About the Author…

Mary Norton (née Pearson) was an English children’s author. She was the daughter of a physician, and was raised in a Georgian house at the end of the High Street in Leighton Buzzard. The house now consists of part of Leighton Middle School, known within the school as The Old House, and was reportedly the setting of her novel The Borrowers (yes, we have that one too..why not buy the pair!)
