Set in England during the Blitz, Ms. Price, an apprentice witch, reluctantly takes in three orphaned children -- Charlie, Carrie and Paul. Although Ms. Price’s early attempts at magic create laughable results, she ends up successfully casting a traveling spell on an ordinary bedknob. Soon they find themselves swept away aboard a fantastic flying bed on a fun-filled adventure, joined by Correspondence College of Witchcraft headmaster Mr. Browne, to the animated Isle of Naboombu to find a powerful spell that may save England and end the war.
