9780140316667: The Complete Borrowers Stories (Puffin Books)

Five classic stories about the race of tiny people. The Borrowers own nothing at all; everything they have is borrowed from the "human beans", who don't even know they exist. That is, until Arrietty Clock makes friends with one. And from that moment danger is never far away.

Review:

Beautifully written, poetic and almost always alarming, the Borrowers books have something very mysterious, sad and exciting about them ( Sunday Times)

About the Author:

Mary Norton was born in 1903 and brought up in a house in Bedfordshire, which was to become the setting for The Borrowers. First published in 1952, The Borrowers was an imediate success, winning the Library Association's Carnegie Medal. There followed four more Borrowers books: The Borrowers Afield (1955), The Borrowers Afloat (1959), The Borrowers Aloft (1961) and The Borrowers Avenged (1982). Poor Stainless was the last Borrowers story Mary Norton wrote. She died in 1992.
