The Borrowers Summary

The Borrowers by Mary Norton

A beautiful hardback gift edition of Mary Norton's classic children's story, THE BORROWERS, including the original artwork by Diana Stanley and a stunning cloth-bound cover with ribbon feature.

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 from above, and the family's incredible adventure begins.

The perfect Christmas gift for readers young and old.

The Borrowers 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 *

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 children's book, THE MAGIC BEDKNOB - later combined with BONFIRES AND BROOMSTICKS in a single volume, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS - was published. This was 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.
