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