"The Professor Branestawm stories really made me laugh when I was a boy. I rediscovered them recently and have greatly enjoyed reading them to my own kids. It's brilliant that a book written in 1933 can still make a modern kid laugh like a drain." --Charlie Higson
     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.
