About this deal

The first title, 'The Magic Bedknob', published on pictorial cloth, is slightly rubbed at the front and rear panels. They don’t have quite as many adventures, and they’re much more serious ones (well, at least one of them is). Imagination for a Lifetime -- Disney Titles All the Time; Walt Disney Home Video Debuts the Gold Classic Collection; An Animated Masterpiece Every Month in 2000" (Press release). The first book is "The Magic Bedknob", and the second book "Bonfires and Broomsticks" takes place two years later.

She casts the spell on a bedknob, and adds only Paul can work the spell, as he is the one who handed the bedknob to her. It is kind of more than I would expect from a chapter book, in terms of the danger the kids get into (burning at the stake?

Wandering around lost in 1666 London, they encounter a professional necromancer named Emilius Jones (who is actually a very nervous humbug–nervous because he could be burnt at the stake if any of his clients, suspecting that he was a humbug, decided to turn him in for doing sorcery). It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance.

Weinrib also voices Secretary Bird, a prim and proper type who is King Leonidas's secretary, and often bears the brunt of the King's outbursts. A brand new paperback edition of BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS, comprising the two favourite magical classics THE MAGIC BEDKNOB and BONFIRES AND BROOMSTICKS. Little do they know, she is learning to be an apprentice witch, and is quite nifty with certain spells. Well, maybe not quite in the way that its subtitle – how to become a witch in ten easy lessons – suggests.It certainly wouldn’t be like anything in the book Bedknob and Broomstick, but I have a feeling that movie was wildly different from the book. Unlike some fiction from this period the language hardly feels dated and, despite obvious indications that the story isn’t set in recent decades, is extremely readable. Just then, the bed is fished out of the sea by a bear, who informs the group that humans are not allowed on the island by royal decree. Pierce's colour illustrations are charming, and the story is witty and observant, told in the amusing style that the author was to use to wonderful effect with the Borrowers. The musical score for Bedknobs and Broomsticks was composed and adapted by Irwin Kostal, with all songs written by Richard M.

I will say that I love the idea of "everything in moderation" that the first book introduces, though it's a shame it relied on that lazy, ever-so-slightly offensive "island of native cannibals" trope to get there. Discover The Magic Bedknob and Bonfires and Broomsticks, two stories full of magic from much-loved author Mary Norton, and the inspiration behind the classic film.Il film della Disney con Angela Lansbury prende solo spunto dall'idea iniziale del libro per virare in una storia totalmente diversa.

As the Sherman brothers' contract with the Disney studios was set to expire in 1968, they were contacted by Bill Walsh in their office to start work on the film.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
