Literature: Bedknob and Broomstick
A duology of children's fantasy novels by Mary Norton (who also wrote The Borrowers).

The individual novels are The Magic Bed Knob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons and Bonfires and Broomsticks. They are commonly republished in a single volume as Bedknob and Broomstick.note 

The series inspired the Disney film Bedknobs and Broomsticks.


Bedknob and Broomstick provides examples of:

  • Apothecary Alligator: Miss Price's workroom includes "a small stuffed alligator, which hung by two wires from the ceiling."
    "What are alligators used for, Miss Price?" asked Paul.
    Again Miss Price's long training in truthfulness overcame her longing to impress. "Nothing much," she said. "They're out of date now. I like to have it there for the look of it."
  • Blitz Evacuees
