Bedknobs and Broomsticks: A Magical Adventure in World War II
Written by Mary Norton in 1943, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a delightful blend of fantasy and history. Set during World War II in England, the story follows three orphaned children, Charlie, Carrie, and Paul, who are evacuated to the countryside and find themselves in the care of Miss Eglantine Price, an aspiring witch. With the help of a magical bedknob, they embark on a series of extraordinary adventures, including a journey to the fantastical land of Naboombu.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks captures the imagination with its whimsical storytelling and endearing characters. Norton skillfully intertwines real-life events with magical elements, creating a world where talking animals, animated armor, and enchanted spells coexist. The book was later adapted into a beloved Disney film in 1971, featuring a memorable combination of live-action and animation, and showcasing the extraordinary talents of Angela Lansbury as Miss Price.
