CHILDREN'S & YA

The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm by Norman Hunter, read by Martin Jarvis. The first in a series of books about the titular absent-minded inventory grabbed Jarvis's interest immediately since he had long admired the author and later met him. "It was a privilege to be invited to record this book," said Jarvis. "I grew up with the idea of Norman Hunter in my mind because he published a lot of books on magic and, like many boys aged nine and 10, I had a collection of conjuring books, including his Successful Conjuring for Amateurs (1951). It was a fantastic book with all kinds of secrets such as slate magic and cabinet magic, the Chinese linking rings, close-up magic and card magic. Actually, you could imagine that some of the explanations for these tricks were written not by Norman but by his alter ego, Professor Branestawm." (Naxos AudioBooks, July)
