Professor Branestawm

Professor Branestawm

Does anyone remember a series of books from the early 70's about professor brainstorm. He wore several pairs of glasses simultaneously and invented stuff. Apparently the illustrations are by Heath Robinson.

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia!
Have you got anything you could add?

    I read all the Professor Branestawm book, they were so funny. His housekeeper was called Miss Flittersnoop!

    He used to have several pairs of glasses - most of which were on the top of his head as I recall!

    Yeah, remember these very well, I read them all in the late '70s as a child. Branestawm was created by the author Norman Hunter, and lived in the fictional town of Pagwell. His housekeeper was called Mrs. Flittersnoop, and he had a neighbour who was an ex Royal Navy commander called Commander Hardaport. I can't remember the name of the vicar, but he had two tearaway twin daughters.

    The Professor Branestawm books did survive into the 70s. I remember buying one a week with my pocket money from my local bookshop until I had the full set.

    In the late 60's early 70's I had a couple of story records "singles" featuring Prof. Brainestawm. He invented a potion that made pictures real, including apples, which consequently tasted of paper. Good sound effects too!

    I was lucky in that the schools I went to in the 70s had several Professor Branestawm books which became my favourites :)

    Professor Branestawm books flourished approx. 1950. They may have not survived into the 1970s.
