    It all begins when Carey, Charles, and Paul are sent away to stay with their old aunt in a Bedfordshire village. It looks like an uneventful summer is ahead, until the day they find Miss Price sitting in the garden. She, it turns out, is studying to be a witch and takes the children on a series of adventures via a flying bed. They visit a London police station and a tropical island, and go back in time to the 17th century.

    Overall

    This is the kind of story I loved when I was a child. 3 children on summer holiday notice a neighbor is practicing witchcraft. Miss Price gives them a spell which allows them to travel in time and space. After several adventures which turn out different than intended, Miss Price finds love in the 17th century. Even though I still liked this book as an adult, the ending did seem abrupt and illogical (even for a fantasy, because all stories should have their own logic). Anna Massey is perfect as the narrator - a proper British lady, like Miss Price.
