Product Description


As exciting as it is alarming, the story of the family living beneath the floorboard is a fun bedtime read for children aged five to nine (TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE)

These stories are classics; they are fantastic to read aloud and a must-have for every child's booksehlf. This is a beautiful edition, with original illustrations from Diana Stanley and this hardback edition has a real handling pleasure ... This would be a fantastic Christmas present for a keen 7-10 year old reader. 5/5 (THE BOOKBAG)

What makes this omnibus edition special is its feel - the size, weight, look and feel of it make you want to sit in front of the fire and read. (Saffia Farr JUNO)

Book Description

Great value hardback edition of the first two classic Borrowers stories, 'The Borrowers' and 'The Borrowers Afield' to tie in with this year's BBC 90-minute family Christmas special.

3.0 out of 5 stars the borrower 30 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chose this book to read to my seven year old. Sadly he lost interest. I think the writing style is a little too old fashioned and slow paced for him. More of nostalgia fest for older generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic story still popular in 21st Century 14 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book on behalf of my Mother for my granddaughter's 6th birthday. When my granddaughter received this as a present she was thrilled to bits. Although she can't read it for herself yet, she is looking forward to having it read to her. As she excitedly pointed out it is two books in one. It is nice to think that the older stories and books still have a place in the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Borrowers 1 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved The Borrowers (and the Wombles) when I was younger, and when my son showed an interest in both, I jumped at the chance to re-read them.

He is 7, and The Borrowers has had him captivated from page one! We both love the way they use normal, household things in their own unique way to make things for 'little people'. The stories are good, the action is well paced ... all in all, I think this is an 'old' story that has stood the test of time, and is still magival for children today.

Please put the rest of The Borrowers stories on Amazon. They are all available ... But ONLY in CHINESE!!!!!!!!!!! What about the rest of us. Desperately awaiting to download them as soon as you do.

These are Classic Childrens stories and should all be available. If you can put things like Alice In Wonderland on here then these should be also.
