I'm remember going to the library every week to read the next one in the series of Bobby Brewster books. They were written by children's author H.E. Todd, and the stories were fantastic - many of them involved things in Bobby's house coming to life and chatting to him.
The Bobby Brewster series appeared on Jackanory when Todds read them to the audience in 1969 and 1970. They even became a dial and listen bedtime story service provided by BT in the 80s (why don't they bring that back!).
Stories in the series included: Bobby Brewster And The Winker's Club, Bobby Brewster's Conker, Bobby Brewster And Her Mommy and Bobby Brewster's Hiccups.
