Search - List of Books by Norman Hunter

Norman George Lorimer Hunter (born Sydenham, England, 23 November 1899 - died Staines, 23 February 1995) was a British children's author, best known for his character Professor Branestawm.

His career started as an advertising copywriter. In the 1930s Hunter was performing as a stage magician in Bournemouth. It was at this time he started to write the Professor Branestawm series, originally as a radio series. The books were published in hardback, with the first illustrated by W. Heath Robinson. Other illustrators were to follow, including James Arnold, George Worsley Adamson, Gerald Rose, David Hughes, Jill McDonald and Derek Cousins. In the 1960s the books were reprinted in Puffin Books, the Penguin children's imprint.

Hunter returned to London during the Second World War, living on a boat on the Thames. In 1949 he went to work in South Africa and the fiction writing ceased. On his retirement in 1970, he once again returned to London where Thames television had just produced the Professor Branestawm 8 part TV series. He continued writing in his retirement with his last book published in 1983.
