Mary Norton, Beth Krush (Illustrations). Joe Krush (Illustrations). I have noticed that most people who borrow books do it in the same way the borrowers do it - to keep them indefinitely! That is how I lost my cherished copy of this classic. There are several Borrower books I believe-The Borrowers, The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, the Borrowers Aloft, and the Borrowers Avenged. The stories are as whimsical as can be, but Norton writes with Victorian edge and can make the mood I regarded The Borrowers with merciless scorn when I was actually at the age where reading The Borrowers was appropriate-I found it boring.

Been reading it to a classroom of 2nd graders. They love it but it might be just a touch beyond the clear comprehension of some of them. I am not enjoying it as much as I remember from my own childhood but don't let that bother you. I grew up to be a bit of a curmudgeon.
I had never before attempted to read The Borrowers simply because I thought it might be this clichéd childrens book. But what got me started in this series was the movie Arrietty. This book tells the tale of a small family of Borrowers called the Clocks who fall on not so great times following the emigration of their relatives - the Harpsichord and the Overmantles. They sometimes refer to humans as beans and thunk that the big people live for the benefit of the little people. This perception is shattered when Arrietty strikes a friendship with a human boy, a temporary resident. It also leads to an interesting adventure for Arrietty. The storyline was smooth and well thought out except the ending...it seemed a little hurried with a nice cliffhanger.
Not five minutes ago I saw "The Borrowers" listed under the kindle Feb. releases and I hit the one click button fast. This beautiful book was one of the first books I read as a child. Our elementary school had a library and each child was expected to take out and read a book every week (on Friday afternoon no less). When I found this book, I found my passion, my imagination soared and I fell head over heals in love with reading. I was about 8 and a very active child, running and playing and loving the outdoors. But this book stopped me in my tracks. For days I ran to my bedroom and tucked myself up with it while my family watched TV. When I got older and was planning for my children I began looking for the book and couldn't find it. I am thrilled to be able to place it in my digital library. Reading has taken a back-seat to video. I've learned from experience that this is not good for our young people. Creative thinking is developed through use of the imagination. Our children need to be able to think creatively if they are to develop the skills to lead us in the future. Books like this help them along the way."The Borrowers," is fun, full of fantasy, and an easy read. Curl up in a chair and have your little one join you to read with a lot of fun and laughter along the way. The benefits for everyone are golden.
When I was little, I loved watching The Littles. Likewise, I loved reading The Borrowers by Mary Norton. The story, in which tiny human-like creatures “borrow” things for their homes inside the walls and floors, is sweet and fun. The teenage Borrower daughter, Arrietty, makes friends with a “human bean” boy of 9. Her parents are afraid at first, but soon find he is a useful friend to have. Until they are discovered that is. The book really drew me in and I had to read the last couple paragraphs three or four times because I was so surprised!
This is a book that can be enjoyed by all ages...from grade school on up. I was well into adulthood when I read this book. I picked up the series at the library but decided I want to own the books. Will introduce them to my granddaughters when they're a bit older--maybe age six or so. But buy this book even if you don't have any kids or grandkids! This book was the inspiration for the movie 'The Secret World of Arrietty.' I won't see the movie because I have a picture in my mind of all the characters. Don't want a movie changing that.
This is a great book. My son and I read it together for his school book report. He is in 1st grade and really enjoyed the book. It encouraged his imagination to think about little people may be living under our floor. He really had a lot of fun with this book and we are going to watch the movie next. This is a great book for people of all ages.
What a delightful novel for young readers. The concept is charming: a unique explanation for the frustration of random missing items around the house. The characters were so likeable, and the situations in which they found themselves were quite amusing. I always appreciate the classics, and love to share them with my children, especially when they are as entertaining as this one.
I never read this series of books as a child - I would have loved it as much then as I do now. It is written for young people but, as with so many classic books in that genre, is simple, but not dumbed-down. Thoroughly enjoyable for any age. I am currently working my way through the entire series. Only complaint: I wish they were longer.
