The Professor Branestawm series is a series of 13 books, written by Norman Hunter.

The Professor was a great (if absent-minded) inventor, always ready to turn his genius to the practical affairs of housekeeping, whether in the matter of a burglar trap of some comprehensive device to get spring-cleaning over quickly. His best intentions, however, seemed to land him in the worst scrapes. Sometimes they involved his housekeeper, Mrs. Flittersnoop, sometimes his best friend Colonel Dedshott, but somehow he never managed to solve the comparatively simple problem of keeping count of the five pairs of spectacles which he generally wore simultaneously so as to be prepared for all eventualities.

Hilarious comedies, mainly involving the machines that the Professor invents, which always seem to go wrong...

Reader's Reviews


This series is hilariously funny, and the professor's appeal is timeless. His weird and wonderful adventures always go wrong, in the most unpredictable ways. Very, very good, especially for boys aged 8–12.
