Professor Branestawm, that erratic genius from Great Pagwell, has been delighting readers young and old with tales of his hilarious and incredible exploits for over fifty years. Here now is a bumper, omnibus collection of all the best of the Branestawm stories, including old favourites from the very first book with W. Heath Robinson's inimitable illustrations, and newer stories, such as 'The Professor Deals with Inflation', which demonstrates just how the Professor has kept abreast of the times. 

Also included are tricks and tips from the Professor's Do-It-Yourself Handbook; puzzles, riddles and conundrums from his Dictionary, and a short extract from the Nottingham Playhouse stage production of The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm.

As Norman Hunter points out in his Introduction, it's very difficult to get the better of the Professor — even his wacky inventions don't manage to do that — but getting the best of Branestawm is a different matter. You've done that by getting hold of a copy of this book. So launch right in and enjoy this Branestawm bonanza!
