The Borrowers 2-in-1 Summary

The Borrowers 2-in-1 by Mary Norton

Deep beneath the floorboards lives the tiny Borrower family - Pod, Homily and Arrietty Clock. Everything they have is borrowed from the humans above them, even their names are not quite their own. There is just one rule: they must never be seen. Then one day Arrietty meets the boy, and the family's incredible adventure begins.

A great value hardback edition of the first two classic BORROWERS books to tie in with this year's BBC 90-minute family Christmas special.

The Borrowers 2-in-1 Reviews

As exciting as it is alarming, the story of the family living beneath the floorboard is a fun bedtime read for children aged five to nine * TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE *
These stories are classics; they are fantastic to read aloud and a must-have for every child's booksehlf. This is a beautiful edition, with original illustrations from Diana Stanley and this hardback edition has a real handling pleasure ... This would be a fantastic Christmas present for a keen 7-10 year old reader. 5/5 * THE BOOKBAG *
What makes this omnibus edition special is its feel - the size, weight, look and feel of it make you want to sit in front of the fire and read. -- Saffia Farr * JUNO *

About Mary Norton

Mary Norton spent much of her childhood in a late Georgian house which later became the model for Firbank Hall in 'The Borrowers'. For a year she acted at the Old Vic before getting married and going to live in Portugal. During the Second World War she was evacuated to New York and struggled to support herself and her four children while her husband was in the Navy. It was then that she began to write, and in 1945 her first childrens books, 'The Magic Bedknob' and 'Bonfires and Broomsticks' later combined in a single volume, 'Bedknob and Broomstick' was published. These were followed in 1952 by 'The Borrowers', which was awarded the Carnegie Medal, and three other titles 'The Borrowers Afield', 'The Borrowers Afloat' and 'The Borrowers Aloft'.
