Review

Praise for The Borrowers:

Winner of the Carnegie Medal

"A book that begs to be shared."--The Horn Book

"The magic and charm of the writing convince children and grown-ups, too, that Borrowers really do exist."--School Library Journal

Praise for The BorrowersAfield:

"Readers who found Mary Norton's The Borrowers just about perfect may approach this one with the nervous premonition that it couldn't possibly be as good. It is, though--and in some ways even better" --The New York Times Book Review

"This book, like its predecessor, is a lovely thing. . . . The Borrowers are fascinating not just because they are tiny creatures in a large world, but because they are people." --The Horn Book

Praise for The Borrowers Afloat:

"It is not mere extravagance that has prompted comparisons of these books with The Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland, for like the truly great writers of fantasy, Mary Norton is truly original."--The New York Times Book Review

Praise for The BorrowersAloft:

"Mary Norton has a priceless gift. She can view humans through the eyes of tiny folks and tiny folks through human eyes, and make both believable." --Chicago Tribune

Praise for The Borrowers Avenged:

"Like her Borrowers the author is resourceful, inventive, and patient; her imaginative vitality is limited only by her impeccable sense of logic, and the fantasy continues to be totally real and totally acceptable." --The Horn Book

About the Author

Mary Norton (1903-1992) lived in England, where she was an actress, playwright, and award-winning author of the classic Borrowers novels.

Mary Norton, or Kathleen Mary Norton née Pearson (10 December 1903 – 29 August 1992), was an English author of children's books. She is best known for the The Borrowers series of low fantasy novels (1952 to 1982), which is named after its first book and, in turn, the tiny people who live secretly in the midst of contemporary human civilisation.

Norton won the 1952 Carnegie Medal from the Library Association, recognising The Borrowers as the year's outstanding children's book by a British subject. For the 70th anniversary of the Medal in 2007 it was named one of the top ten winning works, selected by a panel to compose the ballot for a public election of the all-time favourite.

Beautiful book.

Although it is a thick book it is not difficult to open and read...For me the text is the perfect distance from the spine and you don't have to strain to be able to read it.

I love the line drawings also in here, excited to bring a childhood classic home to my children and read. The cover is also very beautifully designed.
