Mary Norton does peril very well. In this installment, we also get to see the family acting as a strong, calm unit, despite that peril.

I'm deeply impressed by these books as I reread them. Few children's books surpass them in writing quality, plot, and characterization.

The third in The Borrowers series of books, The Borrowers Afloat sees Pod, Homily and Arrietty living in blighted conditions with their relatives in a run-down cottage that is soon to be left empty because Tom, Arrietty's Human friend, is going to live with his uncle. The Borrower family then mak...more

Installment #3 of the Borrowers saga was, for my money, the strongest. Spiller comes into his own here, and he's quite the taciturn but romantic hero.

Their dwelling was between the walls behind the fireplace in the cottag...more

One of my favorite books as a child holds up some fifty years later. I am so enchanted by the miniature Borrowers who make do with the things that humans lose.

Liked it.

Мушу визнати: у нас таки завелися роздобудьки. Принаймні, на книжковій полиці та у моєму блозі. Це вже третя книга із серії про пригоди маленьких чоловічків, і знаю точно, що далі буде, бо Под, Хомілі, Аріетті та Спіллер уже стали майже членами нашої родини. Ну, ми з сином із ними точно практично...more
