Description
(Includes the 1952 Carnegie Medal winner The Borrowers and the 1959 Carnegie Medal finalist The Borrowers Afloat) Where do all the little things we lose actually go? The tiny Clock family—Pod, Homily, and their daughter Arriety—live in hiding among the "human beans," from whom they "borrow" things like matchbox dressers, postage stamp artwork, a trinket-box settee, and anything else they need. Introduced in the 1952 Carnegie Medal winner The Borrowers, these very small people have some very big adventures in Mary Norton's delightful novels for readers 7 to 10 and younger listeners. All five Borrowers novels—including The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, The Borrowers Aloft, and The Borrowers Avenged—are collected in this chunky omnibus, along with the original illustrations and the short story "Poor Stainless."

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

"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."—NYTBR

"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
