Bedknobs and Broomsticks is about the three Wilson children, named Carey, Charles and Paul. One day they were sent to Bedfordshire to stay with their aunt. Every night, Paul saw prim Mrs. Price riding on a broomstick! But he never said anything to Charles or Carey until one day, in early morning, Mrs. Price falls off her broomstick! Well, Paul didn't say anything but they had decided to go mushroom picking that morning before breakfast, and they saw Mrs. Price sitting in their aunt's garden. She had hurt her ankle. They still did not know [that she flew on a broom] until Paul picked up her broomstick, and Paul and Mrs. Price told all about it. But Mrs. Price did not want anyone to know about her being a witch. So when they came over the next day to Mrs. Price's house, she asked for something you could twist. Paul had screwed a bed-knob off the bed, so he gave her that. She made it so that as long as they kept her secret, they could put the bed-knob back on the bed. Then, when they twisted it they could wish to be anywhere and the bed would take them there. After that they visited Mrs. Price very often, and didn't tell.
The reason I liked this book is because of the magic, characters, and the story. These two stories about the Wilson children, combined in Bedknobs and Broomsticks, are both wonderful. I recommend it to readers.
