Professor Browne was Miss Eglantine Price's magic teacher and headmaster of the Correspondence College of Witchcraft in London, but because of the war, he had to close it down so that meant she couldn't get the Substitutiary Locomotion spell. When she, Charlie, Carrie, and Paul get there, they find him as a magic salesman/con man who never truly believed in the spells he sold. After being turned into a rabbit, he tells Miss Price that he got the spells from The Spells of Astoroth and decides to make a deal with her. If she helps him with business, he'll help her find the spell. After facing a villainous Bookman and coaching the soccer game on The Isle of Naboombu, they finally find it, the first time not being a success. Then he decides to leave, but goes back to help because of the Nazis, finally finding the magic in him to turn himself into a rabbit. In the end, he joins General Teagler in the old home guard because he says, "The way things are, it's much too dangerous being a civilian." And so, he leaves with a wave and kiss to Miss Price.
