I was looking forward to reading this book because I knew it had been a famous series, and I wanted to enjoy it first hand. I like the idea of miniaturization stories. Only trouble was, I was disappointed to find that the print of the book had been made so small that I found it disappointing because it was simply too small to read comfortably. True, I was able to read it as long as I did so with a magnifying glass in one hand, which I ultimately found to be tiresome at 2 am. With bigger print, this book would be great! As it is, I could never recommend it without the warning I have posted here. I wish a kindle edition could have been made available. In my kindle, I can control the size of the print.

Came quickly, great condition - I enjoyed these as a kid and now my grandson, an avid reader is enjoying them. Timeless!

No childhood is complete without reading The Borrowers. It was a pleasure to buy these books for my grandaughter, who is loving reading them, just as I did. They are so imaginative.

Exactly as described. Thanks!

The Borrowers (all books) were one of my favorites as a child. I re-read them about every 10-15 years. Just enough time to forget details so they are still enjoyable.

The quality of this used book said good. The box it the series came in was ripped and the books were very worn. I think that GOOD rating should have been AVERAGE.

The seller went above and beyond to do a great job. After accidentally shipping two copies of one book and not including a copy of one of the others in the set, the seller sent out the correct book for no extra charge and it came reasonably quickly. I would definitely buy from this seller again.
I loved these books as a young girl and now am buying the set for the daughter of a friend. Hope she enjoys them as much as I did.
