Book Synopsis



Mary Norton's five beloved bestselling books about the tiny, stouthearted Borrowers, now available together in a gorgeous box set that's perfect for gift giving.

Put this box set into the hands of little readers--or of any reader who delights in classic adventure. Includes paperback editions of The Borrowers, The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, The Borrowers Aloft, and The Borrowers Avenged. These editions include the original charming black-and-white illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush.

A enchanting and enduring children's classic, The Borrowers is the award-winning tale of three tiny people who are big heroes. The Clock family--Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty--are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an English manor. All their minuscule home furnishings, from postage stamp paintings to champagne cork chairs, are "borrowed" from the "human beans" who tromp around loudly above them. All is well until Pod is spotted upstairs by a human boy! Can the Clocks stay nested safely in their beloved hidden home, or will they be forced to flee?

The four subsequent books are equally charming and appealing, perfect for independent readers as well as shared reading with younger children.

The Borrowers Afield: Driven from their home in the big house, Pod, Homily, and Arrietty take up life in a boot.

The Borrowers Afloat: Uprooted once again, the little people journey down a drain, live briefly in a teakettle, and are swept away in a flood. "As irresistible as its predecessors."--Booklist

The Borrowers Aloft: Imprisoned in an attic by a greedy couple who want to use them as performers, the Borrowers escape by balloon.

The Borrowers Avenged: Pod, Homily, and Arrietty escape from the Platters' attic and set off to an old rectory to begin life anew.



Review Quotes




"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." -- New York Times Book Review

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

Loved being able to share a collection of books I loved as a child with my son. He’s almost 10 and loves to read! He sat down and was quiet for hours enjoying the stories!
