* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Miss Price, Professor Emilius Browne, and the 3 children accidentally go visit, underwater in the ocean by the isle of Naboombu. There they see half dressed fish underwater, when their bed gets pulled up by a fishing hook, they arrive on the Isle of Naboombu and they meet a sailor bear who wears a shirt but no pants or shoes on. They go visit the Lion King Leonidas who has a soccer match. Most of the animals at the game wears both a shirt and shorts but only one doesn't wear shorts such as the alligator. Also the Cheetahs shorts fall down before he pulls them right back up. Some of the Animals sitting in the Bleachers only wears a shirt but no pants.

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Played with; the villager painting out the signposts says that "I'm not a Nazi!" is "exactly what you'd say if you WAS a Nazi, isn't it sir"...but the guy ''really isn't'' a Nazi. He's the Home Guard officer referred to in RoadSignReversal above.

* MagicalIncantation: This is how Miss Price casts spells, though Mr. Brown's difficulty in performing the comparatively simple "Rabbit" spell indicates there's at least some element of belief or will involved. Even she doesn't get it totally right, since according to the book it's a toad spell.

There's also something else powering it, since the spells all fail when her house (and collection of magical knickknacks) is destroyed.

* BillBillJunkBill: When Eglantine is rummages through the extremely disorganized Portobello Road bookseller's stall, and instead finds a bunch of increasingly useless and irrelevant books which - amusingly - the seller and Emelius both list as though they're the most worthwhile things ever, to Eglantine's increasing irritation. This includes [[RhymesOnADime "A History of Potting" and "A Yearbook in Yachting."]]

* {{Expy}}: Astoroth and his star seem to be inspired by the medieval alchemist and magus John Dee. His attempts to make animals sentient, on the other hand (as well as his ultimate fate) are rather reminiscent of Dr. Moreau, only with magic instead of science and (presumably) out of benevolence rather than ForScience.

When the witchcraft school abruptly closes, leaving Miss Price without the all-important Substitutiary Locomotion spell she needs, she and the children travel to London via bed. They discover the "professor", Emelius Browne, is a fraud who was just selling her the pages of an incomplete spellbook. So begins a greater journey, from the market at Portobello Road to the Isle of Naboombu (land of animated [[Main/TalkingAnimal talking animals]]), in search of the spell. Once Miss Price learns it, she'll have to use its power to bring inanimate objects to life to save her hometown from none other than the Nazis.
